Shingles is a severe and painful skin irritation caused by the reactivation of chickenpox shingles virus, causing winds.
Adults with weak immune systems are at the greatest risk of shingles.
Shingles – Symptoms
The most common symptoms of shingles are:
– stinging pain
– Itching, burning, stabbing feeling from a few days ago
– fever and chills
– Whole body pain
Inflammation of the lymph nodes
– Blisters (similar to chicken pox) filled with liquid on the chest or face, especially red.
Blisters may take a few days or symptoms may develop for weeks. Then, when it breaks, a small rash appears, and it is easy to dry easily, forming the crust and healing. Total wound healing can take 2 to 4 weeks, but it may last longer.
Shingles can appear anywhere in the body, but the most common areas are the face (eyes, ears, mouth) and torso. Other areas that are affected very often are the chest and chest.
Stimuli are formed by strips with bands or patterns on the right or left side of the body. There may be shingles in several parts of the subject, but only in those whose immune system is damaged.
Shingles – Causes
Shingles is caused by chickenpox shingles virus. Chickenpox virus activates wind (chicken pox). At some point in your life, you can not make shingles more than people who are caught in a storm.
Very rarely people who have been vaccinated against a disease can cause shingles.
Early virus outbreaks occur in infancy or adolescence, and after a chickenpox attack the virus is inactive from the nerves in the body, nervous system, and spine. However, some people reactivate the virus and cause herpes zoster. Scientists have yet to discover the cause of the virus to be reactivated.
