Acute and extremely contagious, varicella (chickenpox) is caused by the varicella-zoster virus (VZV), a member of the herpes virus family. In Hyderabad's urban and rural areas, chickenpox incidences were steadily increased in the month of Jan-Feb 2023, just as in other regions of the nation. According to official records, the state-run Fever Hospital has received between 10 and 12 cases of chickenpox each day, while Niloufer Hospital had seen between 20 and 25 cases per day in the month of February. According to Hahnemann's guidelines, Homoeopathic medicine is not only effective for curing disease but also for preventing it. In order to evaluate the effectiveness of Variolinum as a preventive measure to control the outbreak of the chickenpox disease, a six-month project was undertaken, and that project is the subject of this article.
