You might want to clarify which "pox" you meant. Some a person might not want to admit to .

I was a pretty healthy kid except for allergies. Quite a few pollens, dander, and a number of plant grains including corn and wheat. Soy and some molds too. Once we figured out what those allergens were, I went through sensitivity-reducing shot regimens. Not much of a problem after that. Got chicken pox but never measles or mumps. Hardly ever picked up colds or flu. Cuts and scrapes (lots of those...I was quite the tomboy) healed fast without complications, never needed any dental repairs.

The usual childhood illnesses that went around back in the late 1950s and early 1960s: Both kinds of measles (we called them "German" and "Red"), chicken pox, colds, and every flu bug that came along each winter. Other than those, I was hale and hearty. I somehow missed getting mumps even though both my brothers came down with them.

Fine as far as I know. I was around 3 months preemie, spent my first 5-6 weeks in what would now be called NICU I guess. In an incubator, until I reached 5 lbs and able to be sent home.
Had chicken pox when I was still an infant.
Other than that I think I was good.
I’m 69 now, so I guess I overcame all of it.

Chicken pox and the usual colds & flu. I did have JRA dx'd when I was 11, but still ran around with all the other kids.

No idea why, but in answering this, I totally forgot that at birth, I nearly died from Hemolytic Disease of the Newborn and had to stay in hospital for 12 days after my birth. I was one of the first babies in that hospital to receive a total blood transfusion, which was the state of the art in those days.

Born at home ( midwife ) and quite healthy throughout childhood and beyond ( now in my 70s ). Don't remember ever being seriously ill.

Survived the Brown Death ( 1952, Great Smog of London, killed 12,000 people in five days ). I was in second grade, walked to and from school in that mess. It killed a number of my classmates. Hard to breathe in it, but otherwise suffered no ill effects. I think it made me stronger and more resilient. But what do I know.

I had chicken pox at age 2, but the vaccines for measles, mumps, etc. were already around so I didn't get those.

I was basically healthy, no allergies or anything unusual, BUT I got a LOT of colds which often turned into tonsillitis, and I also got flu almost every winter. I worked with small children from my mid-teens to later 20s and I was still getting colds/flus all that time. The up side of that is that in the past 25 years, I've hardly ever had a cold, and flu only once.

I got all the childhood diseases that typified the early 1960s; measles, German Measles n/k/a Rubella, mumps and chicken pox. After t hose, I rarely had a day out of school sick, and I rarely miss work now.
