I've had the chickenpox three times, the next time I'm exposed to someone who is infected and I get them again it'll be called shingles instead of chickenpox. Its the same thing but with more complications, it'll leave scars. But I already have scars from the last time I had the chickenpox. Most people believe that you can only get them once, which isn't true its very rare to get them more than once. This just means that your immune system cannot fight the virus off.
A person can get chicken pox up 20 times in their lifetime......anybody can get shingles too even if you are a kid.....
My sister had them 3 times and I have known others that usually only get it one time......
I have only had it once, but my bf has had it three times.
I,m 32 and in the last 4 years I have had it 4 times the docs told me it is very rare, but my immune system can not fight the virus properly so ill keep getting it and have been told I will suffer from this for the rest of my life but on the upside I will never get shingles yeah
Most people do get them once, but I have heard of people that have got them twice
My best guess twice,I know people that have had them two times...good luck
Well I think once but on other things people say you kan get them twice I'm confused
If you get a mild case the first time, you can get them again. My daughter got them twice at age 5. Plus, the virus never goes away so you are at risk of getting shingles when you get older which is very painful.
You can only get chicken pox once in your life and the better time to get it is when your a baby. If you get it once your older its more dangerous and you can die from it.
