My very good friend has just found out she has Shingles, and is getting all the relevant anti viral treatment. My query is do I avoid contact with her until she is better? I had a good dose of chickenpox as a child.
I have PMR and currently have just come out of an awful flare up, thankfully all pains have settled and seem to be under control on 10 mg of steroids.
I seem to have a vague memory during my PMR journey that we should particularly avoid contact with chickenpox & Shingles, but maybe if you haven't had it in the past??
Can anyone advise me please?
