shingles on tongue

hello,

As a baby, i received a chicken pox vaccination. There was a very slight chance i could develop shingles from the vaccination. As luck would have it, i developed shingles, on my tongue. From 7-12 or so, i would get shingles on the tip of my tongue. It would only break out when i was either sick or had prolonged periods of nervousness. My doctor said i would grow out of it in time... after about age 13 i never broke out with shingles anymore. Does this mean i have "grown out of it". I dont know much about shingles, and i was hoping to have some help getting more information from a good source.

Also, if shingles break out on the tongue, does this allow it to be transfered through saliva?
