Certainly can, stay away, I've had shingles and its awful. It is caused by the same virus but I had chicken pox when I was little and shingles when I was 18. Get him to ask his doctor when he wont be infectious

IOnly if you have a compromised immune system.The Dr. will have warned them to avoid small children , old people and people who are getting treatments like chemo .

You could, but most likely not. Chicken pox virus lives dormant in your body forever, but can come back during times of high stress, etc.

Its related to chicken pox but caught by people who are run down health wise. I don't believe you can catch unless your health is a bit low

yes. shingles is worse than chicken pox too. my gran had shingles and she had already had chicken pox.


candyxss07
Yes, shingles is contagious. Shingles can be spread from an affected person to children or adults who have not had chickenpox. But instead of developing shingles, these people develop chickenpox. Once they have had chickenpox, people cannot catch shingles (or contract the virus) from someone else. Once infected, however, people have the potential to develop shingles later in life.

Shingles is contagious to people that have not previously had chickenpox, as long as there are new blisters forming and old blisters healing. Once all of the blisters are crusted over, the virus can no longer be spread.

Shingles is not catching. It is caused by the chicken pox virus which remains in the body. Various triggers can set it off including other infections and possibly stress. So don't get stressed about your partner, just laugh and pretend you don't care. On second thoughts maybe you had better pretend that you do!


nutterorsaintuchoose
yep hun but if you are going to get it its already started as you have already bin exsposed to it ,.. dont worry because not every one will get infected .. its like any bug

No. Shingles are not contagious to you because you already had the chicken pox.

no u cannot catch shingles. the chicken pox virus stays dormant in yr system and will surface and affect u when ur run down eg after a cold etc.

No you already has chicken Pox So you don't get it again !

You cannot catch shingles. As you've already had chicken pox, the shingles virus is already in you, this may never come out, but could if you get really run down. I had to look this up recently as my grand daughter has just had chicken pox. Just google it.


davidc
you definitely can


Blake
You can't catch shingles from shingles. You can catch chicken pox from shingles, but if you had a bad case, you are probably immune. If you've ever had chicken pox, you may get shingles at some point. (but that's usually when you are old, or your immune system is down.)
