Hi just after some advice regarding chickenpox and immunosuppression. My partner is on immunosuppressants after a kidney transplant. I've read it's dangerous for anyone to be around chickenpox if they are immunosuppressed. My nephew has chickenpox at the moment and there is a family meal arranged for Easter Sunday . He is unlikely to be still contagious by Sunday but his little sister hasn't developed symptoms yet but may well do before Sunday.
My question is this. Is it possible for me to pass on the virus to my partner even if I don't show symptoms. I have had chickenpox and my partner thinks he has too. So far I've avoided visiting my sister and her family to be on the safe side . My partner doesn't intend on going for the meal but I would like to if it isn't dangerous for him.
Does any one have any ideas or advice about this?
