Welcome to our site
I would like to answer your question
The virus that causes shingles, the varicella zoster virus, can be spread from a person with active shingles to a person who has never had chickenpox.
The person exposed to the virus might develop chickenpox, but they would not develop shingles.
The virus is spread through direct contact with fluid from the rash blisters, not through sneezing, coughing or casual contact.
A person with shingles can spread the virus when the rash is in the blister-phase. Once the rash has developed crusts, the person is no longer contagious.
The risk of a person with shingles spreading the virus is low if the rash is covered.
You can visit your daughter if you follow these simple instructions:
