Re: shingles

We basically deal with herpes type 1 and 2 on this board. Shingles is the reactivation of the chicken pox virus later in life. I've heard it can be very painful. But I have no direct knowledge of how it reacts in relation to HSV2 which I have. Sorry.

Perhaps one of the other boards could help.
