Health Remedies - Smallpox

Product Categories

Smallpox is an acute contagious disease caused by Variola virus. Smallpox spreads very easily from person to person. A person could catch the virus by touching the lesions of an infected person. The virus could also be transferred in droplets of moisture produced during coughing or sneezing.

Symptoms are flu-like and include high fever, chills, fatigue and headache and backache, followed by a rash with flat red sores. A bumpy rash would begin to appear on the feet, hands, and face. The rash then spread to the chest, abdomen, and back. Death from smallpox was usually caused by complications. For example, bacterial infections can occur through open skin lesions. Pneumonia, bone infections, or other diseases would result.
