Maddie (4yrs) has had chicken pox before when she was 2.
She has been on maintenance pred dose for 2 yrs now and is immunosuppressed. She has Adrenal insufficiency too..
We are travelling to see my family on fri. However my nephew has now got chicken pox. I know maddie shouldn't be able to catch it as has had it before. I also know that if she hadnt had it already, the risk of CP can be incredibly dangerous for her and possibly life threatening.
Anyway, in my eyes she will be ok as has had it and so not at risk. My husband however thinks we should avoid going as she may catch it again and therefore be in danger??
I'm confused!! I thought you could only catch CP once?? She had a test and is immune to CP so does that mean she is at no risk at all anymore??
Does anyone know if she is in danger?? Surely she is in contact with CP lots in the big wide world anyway?? Or am I being too naive and wishing for normality??
