Shingles and The Shingles Virus

Shingles, which is also known as Herpes zoster, can cause painful blisters and rashes around the back, torso and abdomen, as well as affect the neck, arms, face and almost any spot on the body.  Shingles rashes and outbreaks are the result of the re-activation of the Varicella zoster virus – the same virus that causes chickenpox.  If you’ve never had chickenpox, and have not been exposed to the Varicella virus, it’s impossible to develop shingles.

But for those who have had chickenpox at any age, the risk of developing a shingles outbreak is about 35% – one in every 3 people will develop shingles during their lives.  After a case of chickenpox is over, the Varicella virus can become “dormant” in the central nervous system (CNS) for many years, and then suddenly, it can “re-awaken”, start to reproduce, and result in shingles.

The Varicella virus is a member of the Herpes family of viruses, which is why it is also called Herpes zoster.  It is not clearly known what causes the Varicella virus to re-awaken, but experts believe that some possible triggers can include older age, certain diseases which could weaken the immune system, stress, a trauma, and certain medications.

Every year, according to the Centers For Disease Control (CDC), there are about 1 million new cases of shingles reported.

While there is NO CURE for any of the the Herpes viruses, and they stay in your body for your entire life, taking care to avoid outbreak triggers as much as possible, and learning about the many viable options that may help to reduce the symptoms, frequency, severity and length of any outbreaks you may experience are important steps to better health.
