Unfortunately yes. Depending on your immune system you can get it over and over again. First time I had it on my left side and painful. Listed about 4 weeks. Then got it again 3 weeks later. This time same spot no bumps just pain. I was able to use lidocaine patches since there were no bumps to help with the pain.
Then got it again 3 weeks later same side different spot and some bumps and pain. I was able to use calamine lotion for itching. I was tired of getting it after that. Did some research and a few months later I decided to get the shingles vaccine. Some doctors give it but usually your local pharmacy will have it. It's expensive. Usually insurance won't cover it. Ask your insurance. It was well worth the $200.00. I've been shingles free since last September. Hurray!
You can still get it but its suppose to help the frequency of outbreaks, duration, make it a milder case.
Hope this helps, good luck.
