Chicken Pox Exposure

My immune system is current low. We are going to visit relatives who has a child that has chicken pox. I had CP as a child but I am concerned with a low immune system- am I exposing myself to becoming ill w/ shingles? Thank you!

Re: Chicken Pox Exposure

Because you have had CP before you already have the possibility of getting shingles. You cannot catch shingles by being around someone with CP. You must have CP first which you have had. If you are going to get shingles it would be from what is inside you already.
