Hi Sweet kitty,

I don't really understand your post. Did you have a blood test to see if you have had shingles?

Shingles is re-activation of chicken pox. You cannot catch shingles. When you have chicken pox as a child, it never leaves your body, and hibernates inside your spine. At a later date, when you are stressed and run down, and usually in old age, it can re-activate and cause shingles. All shingles is, is a cluster of littel chicken poxes in the same place, usually in a band on one side of your chest.

If you have never had chicken pox, you can catch chicken pox from somebody with shingles, by coming into contact with the rash, but you don't catch shingles - its always a re-activation of your own chicken pox. Its chicken pox which can be a problem if you catch it in pregnancy. There is a blood test that you can do to see if you have had chicken pox ( and many people can remember having it) and if you have had it, then there is no problem in pregnancy.

I hope this clears things up for you,


Suzy
