Patient discussion about zona

Q. what is shingles?

A. My wife just had this. It took about two weeks for it to clear up. The sores were painful for her. We tried all kinds of over the counter medicine becuase we thought it was an insect bite or a skin rash. She went to the doctor and found out what it was. He correctly predicted the two week recovery.

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?

A. perhaps it will be then useful if the chicken pox would appear that you have then a separate room if necessary (quarantine).
i advice you also to inform yourself and build your own opinion with this link-page:

before you would like to go on with any vaccination, you should check out this very long list of links:

http://www.aegis.ch/neu/links.html

at the bottom you will also find links in english. vaccinations in general are very disputable/dubious and it is probably time that we learn about it.
