Hi me and my daughter are recovering from chicken pox and my 44 year old boyfriend looks like he has got it aswell but im unsure as he is so red and blothy and covered and it also looks like measles so I wondered if you could catch measles from chicken pox and he is unsure if he has been vaccinated against measles so just trying to establish if its chicken pox or measles
Hi--it would be very helpful if you could post a photo of him on this page
