My dad got the shingles at age 30. Can I get it early to? At age 18? I've had chicken pox when I was 5. I'm 18 now

It has been known to happen from infancy to old age and the trigger for its occurrence is not always evident. There is no reason to consider you more or less likely to have it when your parent did at a young age. ...Read more

If you have chicken pox during early pregnancy, is your baby then immune to chicken pox?

If you have chicken pox during early pregnancy, is your baby then immune to chicken pox?

No.: Early in pregnancy (first 3 months), there is very little chance that the fetus will develop chickenpox, and even then, fetuses don't have an immune system yet and can't develop immunity. Chickenpox later in pregnancy can be serious business, however. Even if you're early, you need to inform your obstetrician, who may wish to treat you with Acyclovir even though risks at that stage are small. ...Read more

If you have chicken pox vzig during early pregnancy, is the child then immune to chicken pox?

Probably not: If you got vzig during early or mid pregnancy, it was likely an effort to avoid CP during pregnancy & possible effects on the fetus. Vzig is a transient protection, lasting at high levels for the first wk & dropping off to nothing after a month or so. If it was given within a wk or so of birth, baby might have transient protection. If earlier, I wouldn't count on it. ...Read more
