    yeah, now that i think back, i do remember pain.

    the pox were itchy but at least as an adult, you know not to scratch. i'm sure it must be really difficult for little kids not to since the itchiness is unbelievable.

    I remember that doctor telling me to be careful where I touch because it will spread to anywhere that you touch on your body. That's an uncomfortable conversation to have with a male doctor when you are 16.

    I had the chicken pox when I was like six. My best friend had it with her brother, who was my brother's best friend. They lived on the next street. My mom sent us over there to get it on purpose. I don't recall it being too bad. Ugh, now I'm afraid of getting shingles. Next time I go to the pharmacy to pick up a prescription, I may pay more attention to the 'get your shingles vaccine here' poster!

    Right now the CDC recommends the shingles vaccine for people aged 60 and older. I assume that means that unless there are special circumstances that insurance won't cover it if you are younger. I wrote something on shingles several years ago and it scares the crap out of me--just because of how bad it can be for some people. The older you are the higher your risk of getting shingles, and the higher risk of having a painful case.

    With that said, my 30 year old niece just got it. Supposedly it is more common in younger people than was previously thought.

    do your research before you get a shingles vaccine.

    not sure what the age cut is (50? 60?) and it isn't as effective as other vaccines.

    Well I remember having the pox and it sucks. I passed them to everyone at my birthday party. I had them EVERYWHERE, and I mean everywhere. On the positive side I got to take baths in that cool oatmeal like stuff. Having the pox is one of my rare childhood memories.

    To my knowledge I have never had chicken pox. Doc says it's possible I had such a mild case they missed it, but no one remembers me having a single bump. I had to be mindful when I was pregnant.

    They don't give the shingles shot until you are over 60.
    Oh, I offended you with my opinion? You should hear the ones I keep to myself.

    I had the chicken pox when I was 17; now that I see those shingles commercials that say if you ever had the chicken pox, you're at higher risk of the shingles, it does kind of scare me.

    My oldest niece, who is the same age as me, developed the shingles about 2 months ago. In her case, it was mostly in her head/face area; she even had some next to one of her eyes.

    I had chicken pox when I was 17. I got them about a month before I graduated from high school. They sucked and I itched like crazy. I had a pretty mild case. I probably had twenty or thirty pox on my body, but I did have several on my face. I got a few nasty scars from the pox, too.

    I had chicken pox as a kid (the spots appeared at the start of our second week of a holiday so Ma Kitty wasn't impressed). I wasn't too sick but I was a join the dots of calamine lotion. Thankfully it worked well enough to stop me scratching and I came out of it without any scars.

    Kasippu - those pics are aweful!!! I had it at 25 and never looked like that. It was still mild so I was lucky. I had shingles almost 4 years ago and was again lucky that it was on my arm, and mild. I have seen the photos of shingles on the face!!! Who knows what Aneglina looks like now though. If she was just getting them it could be a light, and then get worse over the next few days.

    Sorry I know. I loooove gross pictures.

    I actually don't care for the whole Sony/Jolie whatever deal. Of course she is a spoiled actress but show me one that isn't. I would prefer to know what they write about Kidman.
    I only posted here after I saw she had posted a video with her sporting the pox I expected something way grosser (like in the pics I posted) I know people get them differently, I just thought 'how Hollywood of her to only get the very mild version' and see what the GR thinks about this.

    I had chicken pox twice as a kid, really badly both times. Theyy were even down my throat.

    When my nieces and nephews had it a few years back I was the only one considered "safe" to be around them since I had such severe cases it was thought I'd not get it again. CP is supposed to be a once and done kind of thing.

    My one BIL hadn't had them at all at close to 40. The Pediatrician recommended he stay far away as its dangerous for a man passed puberty. He moved out for a couple of weeks.

    Fun times taking care of 4 pox riddled whiners.

    Me too and mine was a bitch. I had a patch on my lower back that was about 4 inches and it blistered and burned like a bitch! I still have a little scar there...

    lucky... my friend gets 4 little dots on her face ... anytime she's under stress, that little shingle patch flares up.

    Unless you're over 50, I think it's pretty much "frowned upon" to get the shingles vacc.

    actually, per CDC website: Shingles vaccine is approved by FDA for people aged 50 years and older. However, CDC does not have a recommendation for routine use of shingles vaccine in people aged 50 through 59 years old.

    yeah, that shit can blind your ass. frankly, i'm thankful that my shingles appeared on my lower back. made it difficult to wear pants because the waist line was where mine was located but at least nobody had to see it and there wasn't any danger to my eyes!!

    My mom had chicken pox in her late 30s. She was incredibly sick. The later you get them in life the worse they are. When she was in her 70s/80s she would get shingles. Painful as hell.
