Anyone knows anything about BFing and shingles? I haven't been officially diagnosed (going to the dr tomorrow) but I have a strong suspicion I might have shingles--and might be having an outbreak. My baby is 11 months old so hasn't had the chickenpox shot yet.
Can a mom BF while having a shingles outbreak? How about medication? Anyone with experience and/or advice?
I am SO WORRIED about my baby.
PS. I have a suspicious rash--it's not a major rash, it's three or four small spots where there are red little bumps. One of the clusters is on my breast near the areola. Not on the areola, but very close.
