I got sores on my tonsils when I had the chicken pox. Dear Lord, but they were miserable! I guess technically, they were chicken pox lesions, but whatever they were, they were awful!
I was about six when I got the chicken pox and my mom said I had about the worst case she had ever seen, for a child not to go to the hospital. I know they discussed taking me. I think it was because I couldn't eat or drink much and I was getting dehydrated. The hospital couldn't have done too much for me except give me fluids.
