What are the symptoms for chickenpox?

I have little red spots on my legs with white heads in the center. They itch and I have had a bad cough for a few days. I looked up the these signs and I found Chicken Poxs. I have had both my shots and I am sure I have not been in contact with anyone who has this. I hope yoi can help Dr.

hello,
welcome to HCM,
i do understand your concern.
it all depends on the age of the person,
usually a person in childhood or early adulthood will definitely have an episode, which will provide him lifetime immunity.
but in your case it may be chicken pox by all certainty, but i would advice you to consult a doctor and take proper treatment for it and dont do a guess work as it may be something else also...
