Chicken pox and measles are different diseases and are caused by different viruses. Measles and chickenpox can be transmitted through breathing air, through droplets of saliva, or through direct contact with a patient's lesions.
From the circumstances that you experience, if you had been exposed to measles as a child, and you currently have the potential to get chickenpox.
