How long is chicken pox contagious?

Spread the word, not the Pox

Chicken pox is highly contagious from 1 - 2 days before any spots become noticeable until all the lesions are scabbed over. It is only fair to warn parents of playmates, daycare and baby-sitters, teachers and other groups your child has been in touch with. Do this by phone, please.
