Could i have chicken pox from being next to the person?


That all depends, iamkelly.  Have you had your chickenpox vaccination?  If you have, you should be fine.  However, if you didn't, there is a high likelihood you will get the infection.  Chicken pox is transmitted via many ways.  It can be spread by person to person touch whereas the uninfected person touches the blisters, saliva, or mucus of the infected person.  It is transmitted through the air by a cough or a sneeze as well.  If the person with chickenpox has wiped his hand on his clothing after sneezing, for instance, his clothing will have the virus on it. It is a highly contagious disease.
