  • it can create fertility problems in older male children/men... and secondary infections in children/adults. Those are EXTREMELY rare, and take quite a lot of neglect, or an already severely compromised immune system to even occur.

  • while your immune system is busy trying to fight off the chicken pox, it leaves itself open to other illnesses ...
