I want to 'Pick' everyone's brains here. I was told, when I was first diagnosed (Non-Specific ANCA Vasculitis-Several 'Overlapping' Strains) to avoid Chicken Pox. Apparently this 'Childhood Disease' could be fatal. My father, who I haven't seen since September, now tells me he has Shingles which is caused by the same virus. My question is therefore two-fold.
Firstly how Contagious is Shingles, bearing in mind I'm on Immuno-Suppressants? Secondly, given that he IS contagious, how long until he isn't?
Ordinarily, when I stay there, I have my 'own' room but clearly share the Communal areas. Generally speaking My Father, Step Mother and I would all eat together. The food having been prepared in their home.
We would all appreciate some guidance here as, 'Me and Dad', don't see much of each other.
I'd put 'Thanking you in anticipation' but I can't spell all that, so I'll just say Thanks.
