I thought once you get chicken pox, you become immune?

Three times? That’s really unusual. Most people get it once and then are immune for life.

Generally. Many people claim to have had chickenpox 2 or more times. On rare occasions, it happens. But usually "One common reason for a child to have a 'second' attack of chickenpox is simply because the first case, or maybe the second case, was really something else that was misdiagnosed as chickenpox. . . Although a full-blown case of chickenpox is hard to miss, other viral infections and even insect bites can be misdiagnosed as mild cases of chickenpox, especially by non-medical personnel, including parents and day care workers."

Misdiagnoses do not mean "many people have chickenpox 10 times."

This information does not represent the viewpoint you are peddling. And you are also contradicting yourself, by claiming there is a lot of people who have had chicken pox multiple times, and then posting "supporting material" that says it is all misdiagnoses.

I have never said there are many people who have had chickenpox multiple times. Please quit misrepresenting what I say. There are many people who claim to have had it many times over, also measles and sometimes mumps. I said "On rare occasions, it happens." What does rare mean to you?

It's a legal term, but not medical.

My son had a very mild chicken pox at a year old when his brothers got it. At 6 he had a big bump on his foot so took him to the doctor. He said it’s chicken pox and you can get it twice if the first case is mild. By night time he had it bad.
