Tiffany - July 30

My blood work came back saying I was exposed to 5th disease already. My brother is a teacher and was recently exposed to it. The next time I'll see him, he be on day 16 of 17 (i think) of the incubation period. Am I at any risk of getting it again If I see my brother? Please answer - he's supposed to come for the party when we annouce if the baby's a boy or a girl. I would really like him to attend

I am a school teacher and have been exposed to Fifths Disease before I got pregnant. I was exposed to it again after I got pregnant and my doctor ran blood tests and said that since I had been exposed to it before, my body had built antibodies for it and even if I was exposed to it again I would not get it. It should be fine, but I would always give your doctor a call just to be on the safe side.

if your test came back and it showed that you have already had fifth's disease then you can't get it again. it's like having chicken pox - once you have had it you can't get it again.
