Chickenpox is usually a mild but highly infectious disease. It can be spread from one person to another very quickly through direct contact with the broken chickenpox blisters and also when someone with the infection coughs or sneezes. Usually you will have chickenpox only once during your lifetime because your body produces antibodies to the virus to protect you against reinfection.Shingles is an infection of a nerve by the same virus that causes chickenpox. Anyone who has had chickenpox in the past may go on to develop shingles, however shingles is not infectious.
