My dear husband called me a half an hour ago to inform me that a little 7-month-old guy at the birthday party we attended over the weekend was diagnosed with shingles this morning and “isn’t contagious.”
Hmmmm?! An infant with shingles?!
According to my little bits of research, he could have shingles if he was vaccinated for the Varicella virus, but that doesn’t typically happen until 12-15 months of age. And if he does indeed have singles, anyone who has not had the chicken pox could indeed contract it. Or maybe this little guy has the beginning stages of chicken pox? Who knows!?
In any case, there’s not much to do but wait and see. Any advice for making preparations for the chicken pox?
