Desc-Shingles by DTownTony | May 14, 2023 × Shingles is a painful viral infection that can cause a rash or blisters on the skin. It’s caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox, and it can occur years after the initial infection. Shingles typically affects one side of the body and can cause burning, tingling, or shooting pain that can last for several weeks. It’s important to see a dermatologist for prompt diagnosis and treatment, as antiviral medications can help shorten the duration of the outbreak and reduce the risk of complications. If you think you may have shingles, don’t hesitate to seek medical care.
