    What should I tell a patient to do if the lesion is oozing? Is this a transmission risk?

    There is little risk of transmission as long as the lesions remain covered and no one who is pregnant or has a weakened immune system comes into contact with the lesions. Draining lesions must remain covered with an airtight and watertight dressing until they are no longer draining. Dressing should be changed once a week
