Shingles can relapse at anytime
Herpes Zoster, also named Shingles, is a contagious disease caused by varicella-zoster virus infection. Once chickenpox has resolved, the virus remains inactive in nerve cells. Shingles may happen to people who have had chickenpox before, even if you are in good health. The treatment includes antiviral drugs within 72h of the appearance of skin rash. However, the initial symptoms may not be apparent, patients may have missed the perfect timing of treatment.
Almost every adult can develop Shingles
In Shingles, pain is excruciating
Where the virus is reactivated, virus travels along the nerve to the skin of different parts of body. Different affected body parts may cause different medical conditions. Serious cases may lead to facial nerve paralysis, vision loss or even blindness and deafness.

Patients experience acute pain with even a slight touch to the skin. Some patients will use painkillers in the long term, which affects their quality of life.
