Please could anyone tell me if i should avoid being with my grandaughter at the mo. Last weekend she was in contact with a little girl who has since gone down with chickenpox this week, so obviously on the weekend she was already infectious which means my grandaughter could now be carrying the virus. Because my immune system isnt very good at mo, i am worried that she could give me shingles,(i have had chickenpox), and i really dont want shingles as you can imagine. Should i not be with her (agony cus shes 3 and adorable and i love her to bits.), should i wait to see if she comes out with chickenpox. i know the incubation period is up to 2 weeks?
