Shingles (Herpes Zoster)

Many of us are familiar with chickenpox from our childhood, but what do you know about its sister virus, shingles? Herpes zoster, more commonly known as shingles, is caused by the varicella zoster virus (VZV) – the chickenpox inducing virus. VZV remains dormant in the body and can reactivate later in life to cause shingles.
