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.

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

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.

My sister had Shingles at age 8, so don't be mislead into thinking that shingles is only for the adults

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.

You can get them way more than once... All of my children had had them atleast 2, one of my sons had them 3 times and he is only 8 yrs old. My almost 2 year old has had them, and she was vaccinated!! And also, IT CAN KILL BABIES TOO, so try not to expose infants to this disease
