I did just post this in the pregnancy forum but would like as much feedback as possible. I have shingles and I am 36 weeks pregnant. Rash started 2 days ago on the left side of my back. Then the pain came around to my left breast and now I have some numbness on my left breast, on the bottom. I am just concerned since this illness effects the nerves it could effect the production of breast milk?? That is my question. Anyone ever experience this before? Anyone know if it will effect milk production?
Baby should be fine since I am so far along. I just got off of bedrest for almost 3 months for pre term labor so as long as baby stays in till full term and my symptoms are gone he should be just fine. I am also taking the anti-viral meds for this as well. Thanks in advance!
