I'm pretty sure we have chicken pox (yay!!).

If we get milder cases, can we still have received full immunity?

Also, what does the body look like when they aren't contagious any longer? Is it obvious there is something going on?

I believe you can still get immunity with a mild case...it is not contagious anymore when the pox are scabbed over and not oozing any more.

Uh, no. A mil: case does not necessarily mean you'll be immune. Need to have titers to make sure you have full immunity.
