Are shingles dangerous to a pregnancy?

What medicine can I take?

Yes it is. Any kind of illness can be really dangerous to a pregnancy. Your immune system isn't as great since you're working so hard to protect and create your baby. See a doctor RIGHT AWAY for your shingles.

Yes. Any kind of illness during a pregnancy can be dangerous to both you and your fetus. This is because your body is working very hard to take care of the both of you. It's working over time and your baby is taking nutrients from you so you don't have a great immune system right now.

Shingles can be dangerous when pregant because they attack your immune system making it easier for you to get sick. Pregnant women already have worse immune systems that normal, so it can cause a problem. However, it can be treated with a simple anti-viral medication to get rid of it.
