I have read that Bells Palsy can be caused by CMV, Herpes, Epstein Barr, and something else, I forget, but the majority are caused by Herpes. If the patient has no lesions, and is on antiviral medications for several days, is it safe to be around this person while in the first trimester? The cause is not known, as the patient has no signs of any illness. Not to treat them as a patient, but to say, stay at their house for a weekend. Is this safe or not?
Fascinating thread, GooeyRN, and awsome answers too.......never would have thought of this, it's very interesting. Thanks!
