SHINGLES HURT!!!

Just found out my daughter has shingles on her leg.  My husband and I both have had them and let me tell you They HURT!!!!  A few weeks after I had them my grandson, Josh, got them.  He was in grade school and the Dr. said he was the youngest person to get them that he had seen.

Shingles occurs when the virus that causes chickenpox starts up again in your body. After you get better from chickenpox, the virus ”sleeps” (is dormant) in your nerve roots. In some people, it stays dormant forever. In others, the virus “wakes up” when disease, stress, or aging weakens the immune system. It is not clear why this happens. But after the virus becomes active again, it can only cause shingles, not chickenpox.
