What else should we know about the chickenpox disease? We can start by understanding the different symptoms of the chickenpox disease. In the early stages, a person infected with the chickenpox disease will have signs of appetite loss, muscle pains and headache. In the later stages, the disease gets worst and the infected person will start to have rashes all over the body. The rashes do not stick for too long. The main headache for chickenpox infected patients is the lesions that are formed on the skin. This accompanied by the itchiness that the sufferer faces. If the lesions burst, blood will ooze out of the skin. It is very easy for the lesions to burst, mainly due to the itchiness caused by the chickenpox disease. The infected person will be tempted to scratch the lesions, and this causes bleeding.
