Re: [IP] chicken pocks question

Chicken POX can be an air borne disease, so I have been told.  I would be
worried.  Though I guess if he doesn't have it, and washes his hands as he
gets there, and you then spray Lysol or something on the faucet handles that
should kill the germs on his hands.

You just might need to do an online search or better yet just call your
doctor and talk to an on call nurse. They should be able to advise you.

I have a contractor coming to my house every day and his children have
chicken pocks.
Does anyone know how transmittable it is?
I'm an adult and I've never had them. I've heard that if an adult gets them
it's much more serious than a child getting them. And also a diabetic
getting them is more dangerous than a non-diabetic.

Can anyone point me to information about it?
