Answer

Encourage normal levels of physical activities, with the notable exception of sports that risk CNS trauma because of the presence of thrombocytopenia. Toddlers should wear helmets, although this is difficult to enforce. Most patients can attend school or work under normal circumstances. Advise patients to avoid exposure to varicella.
