Shingles

Shingles, also known as herpes zoster is a skin rash caused by the same virus as the chickenpox. The virus remains dormant in the body, and due to stress, immune deficiencies, or unknown causes, the virus becomes active again. Anyone who has had the chickenpox virus is susceptible to shingles, although it is most common with people who are 60 years or older.
