Office of Disease Prevention SHINGLES (herpes zoster) (This material is provided for informational purposes only and is not a substitute for medical care. Direct specific questions to your medical provider.) What is shingles?
Shingles is a localized infection due to the varicella-zoster virus, the same virus that causes chickenpox. It occurs only in people who have had chickenpox in the past and represents a reactivation of the dormant varicella virus. Why the virus reactivates in some individuals and not in others is unknown. Who gets shingles?
The disease is primarily seen in the elderly, but occasionally occurs in younger individuals. It affects both sexes and all races with equal frequency and occurs sporadically throughout the year. How is shingles spread?
A person must have already had chickenpox in the past to develop shingles. Contact with an infected individual does not cause another person's dormant virus to reactivate. However, the virus from a shingles patient may cause chickenpox in someone who has not had it before. What are the symptoms of shingles?

Shingles (Herpes Zoster)
Shingles (otherwise known as Herpes Zoster) is a painful, blistering rash caused by the chickenpox (varicella) virus, which affects only a limited area of skin, and makes you feel surprisingly tired, run down, and even depressed.
You may feel slightly unwell, and develop a localised area of pain and tenderness a few days or sometimes up to two weeks before the rash appears. The rash starts off as red spots, which quickly turn into blisters. They always affect only one side of the body (left or right) and never cross the midline. This is because they come out on the area of skin which is supplied by one particular nerve. The rash may affect any part of the body, including head and limbs. It may thus appear as a band around one side of the chest or abdomen, or down an arm or leg. It may affect the head, and when it affects the upper cheek or the side of the forehead it may also affect the eye. You should certainly see your doctor if you have shingles affecting the side of the head, and especially if it seems to affect the tip of your nose or the eye itself. It is usually a very painful rash, and typically people can't bear clothes touching the affected area.

and overview of this common viral infection.......
Dr. Reddy's Pediatric Office on the Web TM
Varicella (Chickenpox and Shingles)
Chickenpox and shingles are two diseases caused by the same virus, varicella. The virus is similar to the herpes virus, the roseola virus, and to the Epstein-Barr virus (which causes mononucleosis). It used to be that most children caught chickenpox as children. The virus is spread by droplets coughed or sneezed out by someone who is already infected. The signs of a chickenpox infection are fever and malaise, followed by the typical rash. The "poxes" start as small red spots, which become red bumps and then develop a small "vesicle", or bubble of clear fluid in the middle. Eventually the vesicle breaks, the "pox" crusts over, dries, and then falls off. The rash usually appears first on the head (often along the hairline), then spreads over the entire body in successive "crops" of new "poxes". An infected child is thought to be contagious from 1-4 days before the rash appears until all of the "poxes" have crusted over. (There is some evidence that a child is no longer contagious 6 days after the rash starts, but most people will wait until all of the "poxes" are crusted just to be safe.) In toddlers and school-age kids, the fever, malaise, and rash are usually all there is to chickenpox. One exception to this is bacterial "superinfection" of a "pox", which can be treated with antibiotic ointment or oral antibiotics. In infants and older people (late teens and up), and in people with immune-system problems (such as cancer patients, but also including people taking lots of steroids for asthma, eczema, or other diseases) chickenpox can be much more serious, and sometimes fatal. The complications can include chickenpox-viral pneumonia, as well as damage to other organs. However, these complications are extremely rare in preteen and early-teen children.

Herpes Zoster (Shingles) Eye Infections
What is Herpes Zoster?
Herpes zoster is the medical name for shingles. It is caused by reactivation in the adult years of the chicken pox virus that occurred during childhood (the varicalla-zoster virus). The virus can be reactivated when the body's immunity to the virus breaks down. This may happen due to normal aging, or the body's immune system may become weakened due to stress from illness, physical or emotional stress, fatigue, poor nutrition, certain medications, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or other factors.
Once reactivated, the virus travels along nerve fibers, usually settling in fairly isolated areas of skin on one side of the body. The infected area of the body usually has severe pain, itching, redness, numbness, and the development of a rash. The rash on the skin develops into small, fluid-filled blisters called vesicles. Within a few days of their appearance on the skin, the vesicles break open and form scabs. In severe cases, the rash can leave permanent scars, long standing pain, numbness, and skin discoloration.

Shingles is a painful blistering rash caused by reactivation of varicella, the chickenpox virus. Chickenpox is the primary infection with the virus, Herpes zoster The virus remains in a resting phase in these nerve cells for years before it is reactivated and grows down the nerves to the skin to produce shingles (zoster). This can occur in childhood but is much more common in adults, especially the elderly.

Shingles is more common and more severe in patients with poor immunity. Blisters can occur in more than one area and the virus may affect internal organs, including the gastrointestinal tract, the lungs and the brain. Chickenpox or shingles in the early months of pregnancy can harm the fetus, but luckily this is rare. The fetus may be infected by chickenpox in later pregnancy, and then devlop shingles as an infant.

Shingles: An Unwelcome Encore
By Evelyn Zamula In Italy, shingles also is called St. Anthony's fire, a fitting name for a disease that has bedeviled saints and sinners throughout the ages. Caused by the same varicella-zoster virus that causes chickenpox, shingles (also called herpes zoster) most commonly occurs in older people. Treatment was once limited to wet compresses and aspirin. Today's treatments provide a variety of ways to shorten the duration of a shingles outbreak and to control the associated pain. Sometimes, however, shingles leads to a chronic painful condition called post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN) that can be difficult to treat.
Initial Symptoms
After an attack of chickenpox, the varicella-zoster virus retreats to nerve cells in the body, where it may lie dormant for decades. But under certain conditions, usually related to aging or disease, the virus can reactivate and begin to reproduce. Once activated, the virus travels along the path of a nerve to the skin's surface, where it causes shingles.

Published by BUPA's Health Information Team
February 2004 Shingles causes a painful rash of small blisters that typically appear on the body, often in a band on the chest and back. The virus that causes shingles is called varicella zoster. This is the virus that causes chickenpox. After having chickenpox, the varicella virus lies dormant in the spinal cord. If the virus reactivates in the spinal cord it causes shingles.
Chickenpox and shingles
Chickenpox is very common in children, and usually only causes mild illness. Once someone has had chickenpox, they are immune to further infection. However, the varicella zoster virus which causes chickenpox remains in the body for life. Normally, the varicella virus lies dormant and does not cause health problems. But if the immune system, which normally protects the body against infection, is weakened the virus can reactivate. When reactivated, it causes shingles, which can be more serious than chickenpox.

About shingles

What is shingles?
Each year, an estimated one million Americans are afflicted with herpes zoster , a painful viral infection commonly called shingles, which is caused by the chicken pox virus. Shingles can develop in anyone who has had chicken pox. More than 1 of every 10 people who had chicken pox as children get shingles as adults, usually over age 60. The chicken pox virus remains dormant or inactive in nerve root cells of the body. In some people, the virus "awakens" within the nervous system to cause shingles. Shingles may include a blistering rash and severe burning pain, tingling or extreme sensitivity to the skin, usually limited to one side of the body and lasting about a month. What causes shingles?
Varicella zoster
virus, the same virus that causes chicken pox, causes shingles. This virus is in the herpes family. Shingles is also called herpes zoster. Shingles is not a new infection; rather, it is a second outbreak of the chicken pox virus. Some of the virus germs that cause chicken pox stay in the body, remaining inactive in the nerve cells near the spine for many years. Then the herpes zoster virus suddenly wakes up from the dormant state and grows. Once active, the germs travel along the nerve paths to the skin, leaving a path of destruction along the nerves in which they travel. The result is the pain and rash of shingles.
