Chicken Pox
I am 26yr old female who had chicken pox about a week and a half ago. I have many dark spots on my face. Will these go away. None of them have left any holes except one on my chin. What can I use for the marks?
I've also heard that one can become infertile after having chicken pox as an adult - Is this true?

Dear Spot,
No you don't have to worry about infertility - it probably is possible but highly unlikely. The dark spots will fade and you could try tissue oil on the chin spot.
