  • My daughter had it when I was pregnant with my youngest. I was told it could be dangerous for pregnant women, but most people who have already had it wont get it again. Most people get it before they are 15yrs old!

    On my daughter it looked kinda like a blotchy/lacey sunburn all over (mostly on her arms and legs) and by the time the rash appears you are not contagious anymore. Its the last of the symptoms to show up!
