Then it gets reactivated as shingles.

Shingles is not fatal but it is very painful. Even after the disappearance of the blisters, the pain of shingles remains for a long time. Treatment of shingles involves certain medications and maintaining cleanliness. However, vaccines are also available, they help in lowering the risk of contracting shingles.

  • Physical or emotional trauma
  • Chemotherapy
