Pediatric kidney transplantation part 78

Children

 

What happens if your child is at risk for chickenpox?

If your child is not protected from chickenpox through a previous infection or a vaccine, you will need to make sure that you instruct relatives, friends, teachers and caregivers to tell if your child has been exposed to chickenpox while in their care.

You will also need to avoid contact with people who have shingles. This is a painful rash that is also caused by the varicella virus. Close contact with someone with shingles can cause chickenpox in a child.

Although it is best to avoid, being exposed to it is not an emergency. There are normally a few days before the virus takes hold during  which your child’s doctor can arrange for your child to get medication if they need it. You can contact your kidney transplant team to discuss the exposure.
