SHINGLES - HERPES ZOSTER VARICELLA
Herpes Zoster Shingles is associated with Chicken Pox. Nerves contain the inactive virus until triggered by weak immunity, illness, trauma or stress. Shingles outbreaks are common in people after age 50.
Symptoms initially are skin sensitivity, stinging, burning and raw pain. Within a few days, a red rash typically appears and pox-like blisters may form, bleed, pus and scab over. Occasionally, there is pain without blisters or vice versa.
Similar to chicken pox, shingles can spread over several areas of the body, including buttocks, genital area, back, arms, legs, and face. Blisters around the nasal area may indicate potential for an eye infection. This could be serious and endanger vision. Consult an ophthalmologist.
If blisters become infected, see a dermatologist. Scarring is reported with infected blisters, particularly in elderly individuals and those with weak immune systems.
The shingles Virus is only transmitted by blisters to others not previously infected with chicken pox, such as infants.
