Patient discussion about bantam

Q. How contagious is chicken pox? I just found out that a kid in my son's preschool has chicken pox. What are the chances my son got it too? He hasn't been vaccinated against it. He is 3 years old.

A. take it easy Issac. chicken pox is a typical disease children have. me too i still live. the most important thing is that your child does not scratch his face because it can make skin damages. your 3 year old child has only now with 3 years a more or less correct working lymph system. perhaps this link-page can help you too:

Q. Is chicken pox dangerous to my fetus? I am pregnant and have never had chicken pox before. My daughter is 2 years old and has not had chicken pox before and hasn't been vaccinated against it either. If she does catch chicken pox can this be dangerous to me or the fetus?

Q. i ate a piece of chicken breast and bone is stuck in my throat what to do

A. You should seek medical treatment - if it's stuck high enough the may be to remove it with simple maneuver. Otherwise, the may use endocscopy (a pipe-like device with a camera that helps to get the bone out). It may cause problems such as tearing and causing a hole in your throat or your digestive tract, so it should be removed.
