Top Doctor: Do This To Prevent Shingles
What is shingles?
Shingles is an infection caused by the varicella-zoster vir. us, which is the same vir. us that causes chickenpox. Even after the chickenpox infection is over, the vir. us remains dormant in your nervous system for years before reactivating as shingles.
Shingles is also referred to as herpes zoster. This type of viral infection is characterized by a red skin rash that can cause pain and burning. Shingles usually appears as a stripe of blisters on one side of the body, typically on the torso, neck, or face.
Most cases of shingles clear up within 3 to 5 weeks. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately one in three people in the United States will have shingles at some point in their life. The condition can occur in the same person more than once, especially if they have risk factors, but this is uncommon.
Symptoms of shingles
The first symptoms of shingles are usually pain and burning, according to the CDC. The pain is typically on one side of your body, and along a certain area of the skin called a dermatome. A red rash often follows. However, the rash does not always appear red. Depending on skin tone, the rash can appear dark pink, dark brown, or purplish.
