Anyone who has experienced shingles has empathy for those who are unfortunate enough to get this disease. Shingles, also know as herpes zoster, is a painful condition affecting the nerve fibers and skin. It is a complication of shingles, a second outbreak of the varicella-zoster virus, which initially causes chickenpox.
Unusual stress is what usually causes the latent virus to migrate through the nerve and erupt as painful blister along the nerve root.
