Customer Question
I have been diagnosed...

I have been diagnosed with Shingles. My grandaughter has a respitory infection. Should I be around her while I have an active rash?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

I have an appointment tomorrow morning.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have diabetes, I had a heart attack a year ago.

Doctor's Assistant: Do you know if your family has a history of heart disease? In general, how would you describe your health lately?

Pretty good. I exercise daily. I try to eat well.

Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

How old is your granddaughter and is she vaccinated against chickenpox?

Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

Even with the active rash, you can be around her if she has had chickenpox in the past or has been vaccinated against chickenpox. However, if this is not the case then you should avoid being around her.

Take care.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
