Shingles are a severe and painful skin irritation caused by the re-activation of the Zoster and Wristella virus, such as activating the wind.
Adults with a low immune system show the highest risk for shingles.
Shingles – Symptoms
The most common symptoms of shingles are:
– Itching, burns, stinging sensation a few days before stimulation
Heat and chills
Pain throughout the body
Inflammation of the lymph nodes
– Appearance of reddish irritation with fluid-filled blisters (similar to chickenpox), especially on the chest or face.
It may take a few days or sit for several weeks of symptoms until blisters stimulation occurs. Then they break down, a small rash appears, easily – easily dries, creates a membrane and heals himself. It may take two to four weeks for total wound healing, but there are cases where it lasts even longer.
Shingles can appear anywhere on the body, but the most common areas are the face (eyes, ears, mouth) and torso. Other areas often affected are chest and chest.
Stimulation is created as a band or patterned strip on the right or left side of the body. There are also shingles deployed in different parts of the body, but only in people with the immune system is impaired.
Shingles – Causes
Shingles is caused by the virus zoster virus, which activates the wind (Arigella). I can not make the shingles only from people who at some point in their lives were flooded by the wind.
Very rarely, people who have been vaccinated against the disease may develop shingles.
Initial exposure to the virus occurs in infancy or adolescence, and after the vertebral episode, the virus remains inactive in the body, nervous system, nerve located in the spine. In some people, however, the virus restarts and triggers shingles. Scientists have yet to find out what causes the virus to reactivate.
