News from the Nurse Tech

A student was found to have a confirmed case of Chicken Pox at the Brooklin School.

DEFINITION: Chicken pox is a viral disease characterized by a slight fever, mild fatigue and a skin rash. Chicken pox is a significant risk to any person who is not immune to the virus.  Sever complications may occur in young children, immuno-compromised persons, and adults without vaccination with varicella vaccine and without previous infection with varicella.

Signs and Symptoms: The rash begins as flat red blotches. Within a few hours small pimples (resembling blisters) erupt. The rash is more commonly found on the covered parts of the body rather than exposed areas but can be located anywhere including the scalp, mouth, and eyes.

Mode of Transmission: The most common mode of transmission is believed to be person-to-person from infected respiratory tract secretions.  Transmission may also occur by respiratory contact with airborne droplets, or by direct contact or inhalation of aerosols from vesicular fluid of skin lesions of acute .  A person is contagious from 1 to 2 days before the onset of rash through the first 4 to 5 days, or until lesions have formed crusts.  The incubation period ranges from 14-16 days.

Treatment: The diagnosing physician may recommend or prescribe medications to ease the symptom of itching.

Return to School: Students may return to school when scabs have dried and crusted.
