Shingles is a blistering rash caused by the reactivation of chickenpox. It can occur later in life as a person ages. Adults fifty years and older can receive a shingles vaccine by contacting their medical provider. Seek treatment if you show signs of shingles, characterized by a painful, blistery rash on one side of the body.
Shingles is a very common condition that occurs when Varicella zoster virus, the virus that causes chicken pox, becomes active after a period of time dormancy in the body. This means that shingles is very common in those who have had chicken pox in the past.
