What is shingles?

Shingles is a painful skin rash caused by the reactivation of the varicella zoster virus, the same virus responsible for chickenpox. After a person recovers from chickenpox, the virus remains dormant in the body and can reactivate years later as shingles. The rash typically appears as a band of blisters on one side of the body and can be accompanied by burning or tingling pain, itching, and fatigue. Shingles is more common in older adults and those with weakened immune systems. While the condition is usually self-limiting, antiviral medications can help reduce symptoms and prevent complications. Vaccination is also available to reduce the risk of developing shingles.
