I definitely thought I was too old to have chicken pox. Unfortunately my nephews visited during the infectious period and I was unlucky to get it. I felt as though I had the flue for a few days, and then spots on my thighs, which I thought was caused by a steroid cream I was using for a wound on my leg, but when my grandson got it and I compared notes, I realized what it was. Has anyone else had chicken pox, and what precautions did you take as I understand if one is on steroids it can affect you severely. I have contacted my GP and am waiting for a reply, although from past experience I am not expecting a positive answer. Incidentally my spots are at the stage when they are beginning to dry up.
