Shingles (Herpes Zoster)

The chickenpox virus never leaves the body and it can come back as the painful rash of Shingles.
If you’ve had chickenpox, you can get Shingles at any time. It doesn’t matter how healthy you feel. Shingles can strike when you least expect it and can cause a blistering rash that may bring deep, penetrating pain.
The Shingles rash can last up to 30 days, and for most the pain lessens as the rash heals. But some people who develop Shingles experience long-term nerve pain that can last for months, even years.

As you get older, there’s a greater chance Shingles can happen to you.
It’s a simple fact that your immune system can weaken with age. And as a result, your chances of developing the Shingles rash increase as you get older. Vaccination is not recommended for people who are allergic to any of the ingredients in ZOSTAVAX, and people who have a suppressed immune system from taking autoimmune medicines, high doses of steroids, or have specific health conditions, such as HIV/AIDS.

One in five people who get Shingles will experience long-term nerve pain.
Most people recover from the nerve pain of Shingles as the rash heals. But one in five people who develop Shingles will experience postherpetic neuralgia, or PHN–nerve pain that can develop even after the rash heals, which can range from mild to severe and debilitating. This nerve pain can last from a few months to several years.
Out of every four patients who get Shingles, one person will experience one or more complications, some of which may be serious.
