Welcome to Healthcaremagic.
Chicken pox may cause blistering skin lesions, but the treatment is not surgical.
No antibiotic can help in chicken pox.
I think it must be something like an infected swelling. That's why probably they have opened it to remove all the pus and prescribed antibiotics to prevent secondary infections. It will be better to get it clarified from the treating surgeon.
All the best....
