According to this site the answer is "no" you aren't going to be infectious. In part this is because once you get chicken pox you will always have some of the virus in you for the rest of your life. Later in life the virus can become re-activated and is called shingles.

Getting a fresh exposure to chicken pox should not have any effect on your status as a carrier though.
