Infant milk, Chickenpox.


Infants, within 6 months of age, needs to acquire essential nutrients that their body needs through breastfeeding, formulated milk, or mixed milk feeding, which serve as their primary source of food/sustenance.

Chickenpox (varicella) is an airborne disease that is caused by varicella- zoster virus. This study generally aims to describe the preference and long- term effects of infant milk in acquiring chickenpox. The study is descriptive

and conducted in specific barangay of Dasmarinas City, Cavite through survey questionnaire. Frequency, weighted mean, and percentage are used to analyze the data. The result shows that psychosocial factors greatly influence the mother’s milk preference. Infant milk, as well as other factors such as exposure to varicella virus, may contribute to adolescent susceptibility to chickenpox. The conclusion can also be drawn that type of infant milk may help lessen the possibility of acquiring chickenpox but individual’s exposure to a certain environment may also play a big part in this. Some of the findings need to be studied further therefore the study is not limited to this research.
