My younger sister (she's 18) called me today because she has shingles. I had to look up the info on the internet because I've never known anyone who ever had it. The main issue is that I have a 13 month old who spent the weekend with them and she has a 6 month old baby. Now my daughter has had her chickenpox vaccination so I know that it's unlikely that she will get the virus, however, the doctor told my sister that she shouldn't even hold her baby until it clears up. Is that a little extreme or is it really that contagious?
