Is it normal if you never had chicken pox and you are 18 years old???
and why do peoples get it? thanks

Im 44 and I have never had the chicken pox. Chicken Pox are worse in adults so stay away from anyone infected also from anyone with shingles.

You get it from being around people who have it or have been exposed to it.

It's unusual for you not to have had chicken pox by the time you are 18, but not abnormal. Some people are immune or partially immune.

Contracting it as an adult is much more painful and dangerous than contracting it as a child.

it is normal and i had it at 12

Yes it is be very afraid of getting it on your age it worse than yolly jik. youl be scrathing worse than ITUBA Scratch card's

i am now in my thirties and have never had it.My husband has never had it.Give thanks you have not had it.It is a very nasty disease I heard.

my younger brother and his wife were in their middle 20's when they both got them for the first time !

I am 37 years of age and had never gotten chickenpox in my life so i guess it is normal/////chicken is mostly gotten when you are exposed to some one who has it //i don't know how it originally started

Linda C
yes,it's normal.i've never had them.i've been told it is harder on you if you have them at an older age.so i try to avoid anyone with chicken pox.

I am thirty and never had it don't know how or why people get it

Susan C
Many people have been able to avoid chicken pox when they were children. But that doesn't mean that you can never get it as an adult. As a matter of fact, as an adult, should you contract chicken pox, it can be quite dangerous. Be sure to check with your doctor should you have any suspicion about this!

The upswing to this is that only those of us who did have chicken pox as a child can get shingles, an excruciatingly painful, but otherwise benign condition that lasts weeks. Come to think of it, I think I had measles, not chicken pox, so I'm right there with you in the danger zone. I'm 53.

Chicken pox is caused by a virus (varicella zoster) which is easily transmitted from person to person, which is why it hits most people in childhood--the close proximity of the school setting and such.
However, it is not at all uncommon to go through one's entire childhood without getting it.
The important thing to note is that you can still get it as an adult, and the effects can potentially be much more serious. Talk to your doctor. He or she may recommend that you get vaccinated.
