I think I may have had chickenpox as a child and he is currently sleeping in my bed?

he would have already been contagious before the spots appeared so it probably wouldnt make any difference to try to avoid him now. If you have had chicken pox as a child you should be immune now anyway.

It 's airborne so if you have n't had it chances are you'll catch it regardles.
