Evening all, can anyone help? I think my daughter has chickenpox, I have rrms and am currently 9 weeks into a big relapse and due to go into hospital this week for some iv steroids, would my daughter having chickenpox hinder/prevent me from having the steroids? Does anyone know?! Liana x
Hi Liana, I would give them a call to be on the safe side but I suspect that the answer will be yes. When I had my (oral) steroids I was told to avoid anyone with measles and chickenpox. The steroids suppress the immune symptom and this means that these illnesses could be very hazardous to us.
Hi…I had 1 day of steroids infusion over…2 dys left to go and then realised my 5 month old daughter had developed chicken pox!!..doc wouldn’t allow me to have any more steroids til she was chicken pox.free
