Shingles / Herpes Zoster / Post Herpetic Neuralgia / Chicken pox shingles

Shingles is a painful viral skin disease that causes strip-like rashes on one side of the body. It is caused by the varicella zoster virus that also causes chicken pox. After a person has recovered from chicken pox, the virus can lie dormant in the body and reactivate, sometimes after years, to cause shingles.
