Also posted in Health and fitness and Old faithful Hi girls i don't know if i am over reacting but wedding is in 24 days....a woman in work's son has the chicken pox.. i have had chicken pox already and so has she, could she still be a carrier and pass infection onto me, and could i end up getting shingles?... She did some backround info cause she is really worried for me and she found out i can get a vaccine, but afraid to do this incase i get sick, like when you get the flu injection you normally get a mninor flu... Does anyone know if i can get it?..not sure if i am imagining it or not but feel all itichy and scratchy!! Thanks in advance x :thnk

Ah you poor thing. :action32 I wonder is the stress of if you have it or not, the reason for all the itching? To put your mind at rest, give your GP a call and see what they say. I'd prefer to hear it from a professional, rather than read it from the internet.
