The link between the baby’s present condition and the three-year-old sisters is that, the three year old might have transferred the virus to the six month old through touch, coughing or sneezing. As it is with shingles the virus was dormant for four month till the time that their mother noted the blister like lesions on the babies back (page17). 4.The baby did not have symptomatic illness when his sister was experiencing it because at the time, the baby was being breast fed by the mother.
