|I got it at 17 and it was bad. I was almost hospitalized twice due to dehydration - I had so many blisters in my mouth, throat and inside my nose that I couldn't eat/drink. I missed school for 6 weeks and I was so sick I had blisters under my eyelids, in my ears, in my genitals - everywhere you can imagine - and yet I never remember itching, I was too sick to even be aware of that physical discomfort.
I would absolutely vax an older child against chicken pox. The illness really is much more serious the older you get.
This, except I was 11. I hallucinated, sleptwalk, couldn't eat and lost a ton of weight because the pox were down my throat, and I itched- I think I spent two weeks in the tub with oatmeal in an old nylon. It was a miserable time, made worse by the fact that I couldn't wear my glasses (and I have awful, awful vision) because the pox were so bad on my face that my glasses hurt and popped the blisters. I almost had to be hospitalized because I was so ill. It was a totally rotten experience- my blisters were so thick all over my body that I had to sleep on the couch for most of the time A., so my mom could watch over me because I was sleepwalking and hallucinating, and B., because my blisters will so big and nasty and all over and painful. I slept on top of big fluffy pillows to take the pain away.
