Hi I know that this is probably not the right place to post this but I am hoping that someone may know te answer. I think DS1 has chicken pox (he has about 10 spots which look like it) anyway we were supposed to go out with his nanna today well we are not now however he would still like to see her. What I am worried about is her getting shingles. What is the likelyhood. Should I say no? Any thoughts? Advice? Thanks
There is no problem. People don't get outbreaks of shingles from contact with someone with chicken pox. They get it when they are tired or stressed, from the same virus which is already in their system from when they had chicken pox themselves in earlier life.
