Brief Answer:
Yes it is communicable

Detailed Answer:
Welcome To HCM. I am Dr Anshul Varshney. I understand your concern.
Chicken pox in it's early stage is communicable.
It is said to be non communicable once scabs are formed over the lesions.
You should re visit your doctor for a revise diagnosis if there is just rash.
The classical rash of chicken pox is vesicular lesion on erythematous base.
I hope it helps you.
