What is Shingles?

Shingles, or herpes zoster, is a skin rash that is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox. Symptoms include blisters, burning, itching, fever, and pain. It usually takes about two to three weeks to clear up.

Treatment for shingles includes taking antiviral medications. A common drug class used to treat shingles is the herpes virus nucleoside analogues drug class. Vaccinations can be used to prevent outbreaks.
