Can You Get Chickenpox Twice?

Answer

One cannot have chickenpox twice in their lifetime. This is because, an initial chicken pox attack develops the body's immunity against the disease; a second attack becomes so mild that it is considered of negligible medical consequence. It is also important to note that other diseases also have chicken pox symptoms and a misdiagnosis is possible in that regard.

There is some proof to put forward that it can be possible to catch chickenpox more than once although it is widely believed that you cannot catch chickenpox twice. For the majority, one infection is believed to develop enduring immunity.
