A few weeks ago we were invited to a party where I learned someone there was having a bad bout of shingles. I did not go because I am not ready to have my disabled 3 year old have the chicken pox. How long is she contagious for? I hate to prod her as I'm sure she's already insulted and doesn't think it's contagious (it is).. but I just couldn't handle that right now with a kid who has zero communication skills. I would PREFER to wait a couple years when she can point to her pain or issue so I can help her better. (note I said PREFER I realize there will always be risks in the world)
how long should I avoid this person. I can't really inspect her body for scabs or anything or be too rude.
