Baby exposure

Postby Ddallmeyer » Fri Jul 21, 2017 1:06 pm

I have a 2 mo old at home, and just got iritis for the first time since having my baby. The doctor didn't say anything about being careful around him, just washing my hands. Is that because of the drops? Any experience with this?

Maybe the steroid drops? It's not contagious so you shouldn't worry too much.

That's what I thought! I've always been told it's not contagious, but first-time-moms worry like crazy!
