Zoster (Shingles)


Shin­gles are caused by Vari­cel­la-zoster virus (Chick­en­pox); Af­ter the Chick­en­pox in­fec­tion, the virus will stay and re­main dor­mant in body nerve cells, and will be­come ac­tive again with old age, poor im­mune func­tion or un­der stress, and thus lead to Shin­gles. The Zoster virus is trans­mit­table, but com­par­a­tive­ly less in­fec­tious than Chick­en­pox.
