herpes zoster aka shingles

Do I have to stay indoors and avoid contact with my friends outside if I have Herpes Zoster?

Re: herpes zoster aka shingles

Most people already had chicken pox or chicken pox vaccine. Therefore they cannot catch the virus from you. As long as your lesions are covered, you should not be contagious to young children who have not been immunized yet.

You can go out.
