I'm 8 days into shingles and caught them early and on Acivlovir 5 times a day. This guy I really like wants to meet me in couple of days and I'm unsure if I can infect him even with a kiss. They have not wept but starting to dry up am I still infectious and could I cover them up to avoid spreading to him? Probably just movie night in and plenty kissing and cuddling but I'm not sure if it is a good idea. I don't know if he's had chicken pox or not. I want to reassure him it's okay. Please advise.
