5 Easy Steps to Prevent Chickenpox

These are the five ways that an individual should prevent themselves from catching such a deadly infection. Chickenpox is not merely a  fatal disease, describing its characteristics and its outcomes on a certain note, but can be treacherous in it`s aggravated state, if medical treatment is not taken into consideration.

Chickenpox is a highly infectious airborne disease, that causes itchy blisters and rashes on the skin. Any individual who hasn`t got chicken pox is at high risk of getting the infection and its symptoms range from itchy blisters to fever, and cold, among the others.

This disease is really difficult to go through for children,  as well as adults and one should be extremely precautious as such, to avoid a certain amount of risk of getting an infection. 

Here are  the five steps to prevent this disease from spreading :

1. Vaccination

Vaccines for chicken pox are easily available and one should get it if anyone around them has caught the infection. People who have already had the infection once in life are at a lower risk of getting it again, but there is no compulsion for the same.

2.  Do not share towels with the patient

One should not share any products that the person suffering from chicken pox is using – like towels, napkins, soaps, creams, etc. It is to clearly ensure that he or she does not catch such an infection, if not vaccinated.

3.  Do not send your children to school

If the disease is quite prevalent according to many health scientists, school authorities should suspend classes for a while and ensure that any infected students do not come to school till the time they are properly treated for the infection.

4. Wear gloves

Always wear gloves to prevent chances of infection getting into you, and dispose them if unused.

5. Use disinfectants

If a family member has the infection, one should use disinfectants on products like doorknobs, drawer handles, etc. to ensure that the virus on them are killed. He/she can use any bleach product, preferably oxygen bleach or hydrogen peroxide.
