Asked for Male, 22 Years Diagnosed with chickenpox 3 days ago. Rashes appeared 3 days ago. I have swollen lymph nodes behind both the ears felt as two pea sized mass arranged above downwards. I have noticed it 4 days back and its still present. Should I be worried? I have no itching at all. No pain, fever or progress of red spot like macules to vesicles to burst. I mean red papules that got swollen on first are even got flat and many can't even seen. Am I still infectious? I am vaccinated in childhood. Is it the reason why it is mild? Please answer each question. Thanks in advance. Started medicine on the day rashes appeared-valacyclovir, gabapentin, cefixime, aceclofenac paracetamol. Lymph nodes are still swollen.
