What is shingles?
You haven’t probably thought about chickenpox since you battled the itchy disease in your childhood.
However, the health problem that is common among children is caused by the same virus as shingles – varicella-zoster virus.
Once you’ve had chickenpox, this virus lies dormant in your nervous system but might be reactivated later in life.
While shingles isn’t life-threatening, they can be very painful, according to the Mayo Clinic.
