About this section


MedlinePlus:32 Shingles is a disease caused by the varicella-zoster virus - the same virus that causes chickenpox. after you have chickenpox, the virus stays in your body. it may not cause problems for many years. as you get older, the virus may reappear as shingles. although it is most common in people over age 50, anyone who has had chickenpox is at risk. you can't catch shingles from someone who has it. however, if you have a shingles rash, you can pass the virus to someone who has never had chickenpox. this would usually be a child, who could get chickenpox instead of shingles. the virus spreads through direct contact with the rash, and cannot spread through the air. early signs of shingles include burning or shooting pain and tingling or itching, usually on one side of the body or face. the pain can be mild to severe. rashes or blisters appear anywhere from one to 14 days later. if shingles appears on your face, it may affect your vision or hearing. the pain of shingles may last for weeks, months, or even years after the blisters have healed. there is no cure for shingles. early treatment with medicines that fight the virus may help. these medicines may also help prevent lingering pain. a vaccine may prevent shingles or lessen its effects. the vaccine is recommended for people 60 or over. in some cases doctors may give it to people ages 50 to 59. nih: national institute of allergy and infectious diseases

MalaCards based summary: Herpes Zoster, also known as shingles, is related to chickenpox and rheumatoid arthritis, and has symptoms including rash which is followed by blisters, headache and fever. An important gene associated with Herpes Zoster is FCGR3A (Fc fragment of IgG, low affinity IIIa, receptor (CD16a)). The drugs capsaicin and capsaicin pwdr and the compounds bevacizumab and trastuzumab have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include nerve fiber, skin and eye.

Disease Ontology:9 A viral infectious disease that results in infection located in nerve fiber, has material basis in human herpesvirus 3, which reactivates after appearing as chickenpox in childhood. the virus is transmitted by direct contact with the rash, which can develop into chickenpox in newly-infected individuals. the infection has symptom rash which is followed by blisters, has symptom headache, has symptom fever, has symptom malaise, has symptom itching, has symptom burning pain, and has symptom paresthesia.

CDC:3 Shingles, also known as zoster or herpes zoster, is a painful skin rash. It is caused by varicella zoster virus (VZV), the same virus that causes chickenpox. Nearly 1 out of every 3 people in the United States will develop shingles in their lifetime. Anyone who has had chickenpox or received chickenpox vaccine in the past may develop shingles. Even children can get shingles. However, the risk of getting the disease increases as you get older. About half of all cases occur in men and women who are 60 years old or older...

NINDS:42 Shingles (herpes zoster) is an outbreak of rash or blisters on the skin that is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox ? the varicella-zoster virus. The first sign of shingles is often burning or tingling pain, or sometimes numbness or itch, in one particular location on only one side of the body. After several days or a week, a rash of fluid-filled blisters, similar to chickenpox, appears in one area on one side of the body. Shingles pain can be mild or intense.
