Is Herpes Zoster Oticus (Ramsay Hunt syndrome) Contagious?

Is Ramsay Hunt syndrome infectious?

As Herpes Zoster Oticus is a serious viral infection which has many complications especially in nerves, many people ask: Is Herpes Zoster Oticus contagious?

The answer is: It is contagious, but if you have contact with someone who is infected, you won't get Herpes zoster oticus, but as the blisters contain the varicella virus, you may get chickenpox in the following conditions:
  1. Newborns.
  2. People who haven't had chickenpox before and they didn't take chickenpox vaccine.
People who have previously had chickenpox, or those who had taken the vaccine won't be affected at all by contacting a Herpes Zoster Oticus patient.
