Question: Hello doctor

I developed chicken pox some days back. I developed fever on 22nd october and started developing blisters on 24th october. My blisters have dried up now but are itchy and have not fallen off. My husband is only here for a few days. Can i go close to him and have sex with him? He has not had chicken pox before so i am worried

Thanks
doctor
