    Varicella-zoster virus infection: varicella. Multiple, very itchy, red bumps and blisters (“dewdrops on a rose petal”), and crusted papules on red and swollen bases on the face and neck of a young female. The spectrum of lesions, (new papules to blisters to crusts) arising over 7 to 10 days, is typical of varicella.
