Re: how can i prevent myself from being infected from chickenpox as my husband is inf

Get the shot right away, if you've never had chicken pox.

If that's not an option, wash after you touch him, his clothing, bedding that came into contact with him...

Basically, sleep in a different room and wash every time you go in to take care of him. Of course, none of this will help if you are already infected, and there's a good chance you are.

So, getting enough sleep, eating right and getting the vaccine as soon as possible will help prevent you from catching it, and make the illness less severe if you do catch it.
