Shingles

Herpes zoster (shingles) is a viral infection of the nerves, which causes painful skin rashes along the nerve pathway. This is caused by the varicella zoster virus, which is also responsible for causing the chicken pox infection. Shingles usually results from reactivation of the chicken pox virus in an individual who has a past history of chicken pox infection. Shingles usually affects a specific area on one side of the body and does not cross over the midline of the body (an imaginary line running from between your eyes down past the belly button).
