Q.

Gordelroos

Is dit gevaarlik as ' n oumens met gordelroos het naby ' n babatjie van 15 weke is. Kan die baba dan waterpokkies kry of siek word?

Gordelroos is nie so aansteeklik soos waterpokkies nie. Tog word omtrent 2% van babas wat waterpokkies kry deur 'n volwassene met gordelroos aangesteek.
