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
Maybe, maybe not: Shingles are a curious problem that happens when the chickenpox virus emerges from a state of hibernation and travels down a nerve root to the skin. 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
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

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.

Less than 5%...: ...According to the cdc, because most american children are now vaccinated against the disease. Most cases these days are in children age 4 or younger, either because they haven't been vaccinated (the first shot is usually given at age 1), or because they are in the small group (3%) who are vaccinated and get chickenpox anyway. ...Read more
Get Vaccinated: If you are old enough to ask the question you are old enough to have had the vaccine (first widely given in the 90's).If you had it before, you won't get it again. If susceptabe, get the vaccine (if not pregnant). You only have to be briefly in a room with an infected person to get it. Adults are at higher risk than kids of major side effects like encephalitis and pneumonia. ...Read more

Immunity with 1st: Chickenpox will confer immunity with the first infection. There are some times when this may not be permanent, as when an infant gets it before 6m when maternal antibody may interfere with antibody production. There are many rash producing processes that may mimic chickenpox & these probably account for what many think as a first or repeat case. ...Read more
Yes: If they never had them as a kid they can get them as an adult. Most (80%) who don't recall having them as a kid have blood test evidence that they did have them in the past. However, adult chickenpox is quite worrisome with some developing a fatal pneumonia and many quite sick with the illness. ...Read more

Simple exposure within the same room with the patient for an hour is enough to pass the germ. Those who have had it before & most who were vaccinated are immune. ...Read more
Chickenpox: There is no one thing that works but there are a few tricks. Warm showers may help. Oatmeal baths have some soothing properties. Calamine lotion can work but you wind up painting yourself pink! Systemic antihistamines can help but I would recommend the broad-spectrum, sedating ones as these tend to be more effective. If all else fails distraction techniques may work if you feel up to it. ...Read more
