Should I be concerned if I have chicken pox pustules near the eye?


Answer by  typist (63)

Varicella is not typically an emergent process. However, your eyes are extremely sensitive organs. Left untreated, severe cases can result in multiple complications. A certain level of concern is warranted.

Concerned, yes. Panicked, no. Herpetic virus can occasionally cause eye complications. Chicken pox blisters near the eye warrant a phone call to your medical care provider.
