My daughter in law has succumbed to shingles and is to go on a cruise in less than a month. Should she be in the sun? Should she be in the tropics? Can she go in a swimming pool. Is my grand daughter at risk?

Re: Shingles

there is a shot that clears this up fast in the first 48hrs i believe. if you act fast you can control this. it is very painful and the doctor should have answered all your questions. act now and he will tell you the rest. i believe the er has the shot too

Re: Shingles

I don't know the answers to your first questions but your grand daughter could only be at risk of getting chicken pox, but she may have had the shot for that already.

Shingles is the chicken pox virus that remains dormant after the chicken pox goes away and then the virus becomes active again as shingles.
