    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    I believe that it is the rash that could spread chickenpox to someone who hasn't had it, or the vaccine, before. I would imagine though that you should go see and dr and double check, they may want you to keep some distance for the time being. Are you breastfeeding?

    Good luck! I had shingles and never developped a rash, and it is definitely the most pain I have ever experienced even more so than two c-sections! I hope that I never have a recurrence again, although having it once puts you at risk for it to happen again.
