The Shingles is an infection caused by the virus that causes chickenpox vermicelli-zoster. One or more nerves and the skin over them are pretentious. Normally, the disorder causes a painful blistering rash, usually limited to one part of the body. Shingles occurs most often between the ages of 50 and 70, but it can occur at any age.

More than one third of older people with shingles have persistent ache post herpetic neuralgia. Generally, the older a person is the superior the chance of increasing posts herpetic neuralgia. Rarely, shingles leads to other serious troubles.

The virus that causes chickenpox often continues to live in a person after the symptoms of chickenpox disappear. Frequently, the virus lives in the part of a nerve near the spinal cord. The Shingles develops when the virus becomes active again is reactivated decades later and travels down the nerve to the skin. The most people who develop shingles have a healthy immune system. But shingles is more likely to occur when the immune system is not implementation well. As people age, the immune system becomes slightly less effective. This slight change may be all that is needed for shingles to develop. Conditions that weaken or suppress the immune system make shingles more likely to develop. These conditions include certain disorders (such as some cancers, diabetes, and HIV infection), use of drugs that suppress the immune system (immunosuppressant, such as cyclosporine and corticosteroids), and adequate nutrition. Surgery or other trauma can trigger shingles. However, what reactivates the virus in an exacting person at a particular time usually cannot be single-minded.
