Our expert says:
The chickenpox itself will not cause herpes, but the dip in his immunity due to the illness may trigger herpes, so watch out for any symptoms and rather take him to an opthalmologist if he presents with any suspicious symptoms. They can treat it with antivirals if you start treatment within 24-48 hours of the first symptoms.
