When we get to the office, my doctor says, "good morning! I am Dr. Graham and I'll be treating you today. What seems to be the problem, Zachary?" I say that I have very itchy, red spots on my skin and my mom said she thinks I have a fever. Also, I'm not as hungry as I normally am. Then Dr. Graham tells me and my mom that I have Chicken Pox! Also known as the Varicella Zoster Virus.
My mom asks the doctor how I got Chicken Pox and he says I could've been around somebody who had it and the virus latched to the host cells in my nose. Then he says how it reproduces like crazy and the Pox spread throughout my body very quickly. I tell him that it's so itchy and I want the virus to leave! He says take an oatmeal bath and apply moisturizer to the blisters."
In the waiting room, Dr. Graham says to take an analgesic to relieve my symptoms. Also, he says not to go to school for a few more days so I don't spread the virus to any other friends. My mom and I leave the office and head home to start my treatment.
I take my oatmeal bath every night and then use a lot of lotion on my skin. Also, my mom gives me my medicine. In a few more days I'm feeling a lot better! My itchy, red spots begin to disappear and my temperature is back to normal.
Later in the week, my mom remembers that my grandparents had the Chicken Pox when they were younger, too. She says that the doctor said it's likely to get the Shingles Virus when you are older if you had the Chicken Pox once in your life.
My mom decides to call my grandparents and tell them they should get the Shingles Vaccine. Having the Chicken Pox was not fun. But at least it's extremely unlikely to get it again! I'll be sure to get the Shingles vaccine when I'm older.
