A friend of mine has a girl aged 8, she has shingles, quite rare for a youngster so her dr says. The dr insisted that she stay at home and can not even wait in the dr's waiting room.
In a couple of days the 8 year old is going to a concert, do you think this is wise?
Aren't shingles contagious?

My baby was a month old when my neihbor came & rang the bell to see the new baby. She came in & the baby was asleep so she didn't pick her up or touch her but she gave me a congrats kiss on the cheek. Then she said "oh maybe I shouldn't have come since I have shingles, see all around the side of my face?" I almost screamed AHHHHHHHHHHHH....then she went home. I called the Pediatricians office & told them, They said as long as I wash my face & hands really well & anything the lady may have touched that we'd be OK. I ran & showered. We never got sick thank goodness, but what an A-Hole move. The little girl should stay home too!
