Shingles is a painful rash usually appearing on one side of the body (often on the back) and is caused by the herpes zoster virus. This virus is the chickenpox virus. When a person gets chickenpox at a young age, the virus remains dormant in the body even after curing the chickenpox. When the immune system weakens in old age or from diseases like diabetes, HIV infections, etc., the virus activates to cause this disease.
It can be itchy, painful red blisters filled with fluid. Fever and headache can be present with this problem.
It is treated with painkillers and antiviral medicines. It is best treated within 72 hours of the onset of the rash. Immunization once in a lifetime is required to prevent shingles.
If you have shingles, rush to I and My Doctors Clinic to get relief, treatment, and a vaccine.
