You can suffer chicken pox again23rd April 2010
Tom Sykes wrongly thought that he was immune to chickenpox as he suffered them when he was a child.
So, when his friend asked him to bring his children along to a 'pox' party he obliged.
However, his children remained healthy and he became ill. He called a nurse in and she confirmed he had indeed developed chickenpox.
It turns out that you can get chickenpox more than once. You are more likely to be re-infected if you are run-down; the only consolation being that the second bout will make sure that he is more resistant to developing shingles.
