Hello! Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com

Chickenpox or in medical language called varicella is varicella zooster infection. Initial symptoms include fever, sore throat, can be accompanied by a cold cough. After that, water-filled plenting will appear throughout the body.

Therefore, the throat pain that you experience may be related to the condition of your chickenpox.

However, throat pain can also be caused by:


Gastric acid reflux to the throat
Foreign body in the throat area
Sores that occur in the throat
Upper respiratory tract infection, infection of the tonsils
To ascertain the cause of the condition, you should consult a general practitioner first so that further physical examination can be done. If you feel the need for further tracking, the doctor will conduct a supporting examination or refer you to a particular specialist according to suspicion of the condition.

As for what you should do is:

Increase consumption of fluids and nutritious foods, such as fruits and vegetables
Limit physical activity
Get enough rest
Avoid squeezing or removing plenting contents filled with water


That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and useful :)
