I developed shingles can I still be contagious to others?
I developed Shingles on 8 days ago. I am on Famciclovir 500mg, 3x day. The swelling around the rash has gone down, and, for the most part the actual rash is drying up. The area in question is on my left thigh. I wear long pants all day long to cover the area. I am scheduled to take a First Aid Course on Monday August 21 & 23. Is it safe for me to do so. Can I still be contagious to others.
