Can re-infection of Barmah Forest Virus occur? Initial symptoms occured in 2004. Milder symptoms now. Blood test results showed previous infection but also showed recent infection. All information found about this virus says that antibodies from infection give immunity to virus, but the symptoms have recurred 4 years later. The popular concensus on chicken pox is that once you've had it you are immune but there are people who have become reinfected. Is that possible with Barmah Forest Virus?


I unfortunately have suffered barmah forest on 3 separate occassions since 2005. My doctor tells me I am just unlucky. Yay. I am currently having blood tests done as I feel all the symtoms again. So over it.
