The views expressed by me are for educational purposes only and do not establish a doctor patient relationship. Hello Thanks for your question. MGH is an excellent hospital. Intestinal infection is also known as colitis or diverticulitis. Antibiotics are used initially IV then oral after improvement. Chicken pox is caused by viral infection. This improves by itself over 7-10 days. Complications are rare, but may make prone to bacterial infection. Intestinal infection may be due to that. Best wishes to her and speedy recovery,

Is this a start of a longterm prolblem? Are their any other cases like this? What is related to both infections.

Expert:  Dr Basu replied 5 years ago.
long term problem may not happen.
but diverticulitis may recur in some cases.
High fiber diet helpful after recovery to prevent further problems.
both infections are suggestive of weakened immunity.
Diabetes, Malignancy or other chronic illnesses can cause this.
Sometimes, this can happen without any apparent reasons.
Yes there are cases like this. Not very uncommon.
