I am a 33 year old male, and I did have CP as a child.
I work in the airline industry, so many hotels, airports and closed areas.
My first symptom was one or two spots that I thought were bug bites.
Then I was feeling feverish and sore for a couple days while having night sweats for 3 nights. Still only a few spots on my head, I thought were zits or bug bites. on day 5 or 6 of all the symptoms, I woke with at least a dozen spots on my head and neck, this was at 4:30a, by 12p I was covered with at least three or four hundred spots. Doctor said he would do a culture to verify CP or Shingles (there IS a difference) but all I could do was ride it out, don't itch, take a antibiotic to keep the chance of a skin infection down.
I currently have them all over head, face, neck, back chest, groin, with a few more randoms on my upper legs and shoulders. with the numbers increasing to over five hundred at least.
I am hoping for few scars and a quick recovery!
