I'm 33 yrs. old & NEVER had CHICKEN POX! Is it possible to be immune to this disease?
Both my brother and I, who are around the same age, have never contracted this virus. I remember when we were little we were purposley exposed to my neighbor kids who had them so we could "get it out of the way" so to speak. The mission was a complete FAIL!

From what I have heard over the years if you get it later in life it is ALOT worse to deal with and can possibly result in death! Does anyone else know anything about possibly being immune?

I do have a stong immune system due to the fact that I have copper based blood but not sure if that has anything to do with it... Hmmm...koolaid

No. It's worse as an adult. Your parents should have ensured you had exposure as a child.

I got it at 14. It was horrible.

Is it true that chicken pox leaves a single indentation/scar on your body? I have a small scar on my chest and was always told as a kid it was from my case of chicken pox.... Looks like a small indentation about the size of a small mole.

you may have had it but been asymptomatic (i.e. without symptoms) so that effectively you suffered very mildly. This may have given you immunity but watch out you masy be at risk of shingles.

OP, whatever you do, DO NOT get the vaccine, you can contract this from the vaccines, I know because I had chicken pox at 36 from my son right AFTER he HAD the useless vaccine! My son got it, he gave it to my daughter who was previously vaccinated against it (didn't help), and gave it to me, at 36yrs old it sucked, 5 days of flu-like symptoms, 2 weeks later the "pox" but I survived and now will have a lifelong immunity, naturally from the exposure.

Just roll the dice and if you get it, enjoy, it will most likely be the last time you have it. Vaccinate now and you'll risk getting shingles in your later years.

I was 31 when my daughter brought it home from school. I was feeding my 3 month old son and could offer him no immunity as I hadn't had it as a child. As a result I caught it and so did he. My doctor said he's too young and you're too old and there I was like Spotty Muldoon. Obviously he was out to lunch. It was miserable and can develop into more serious things as you get older.

Same virus, different presentation. He gets the vaccine now and he risks development of shingles (not chicken pox) later in life. Do the research.

I had the chicken pox at 16. It was AWFUL and seems true that the older you are, the worse you get them. I "tried" to get them in elementary school when everyone else had them and I was the only one in my class that didn't get them. I was so bummed about that at the time. At 16, I ended up missing 3 full weeks of school, which would have been much cooler had I not been so miserable the whole time.

And yes, I have a few "pock marks" which are the indention type scars described above. It's because as the virus progresses the pox turn into these pretty significant scabby lumps and if you scratch or knock one off too soon, it takes a chunk of flesh with it leaving a pit behind. I have one on my forehead and one under my eye as well as a few over the rest of my body that aren't as noticeable. Battle scars!!

Anyway, like someone else mentioned above, you may have had a very mild case of it with just a couple of marks that no one noticed when you were younger. I hope for you that that is the case anyway.

I wouldn't get the vaccine either way. Hopefully, you at least have herd immunity at this point since so many people have had it now.
