Re: I'm 14 and have shingles!!!

I am not a dr so I am just guessing but the vaccine that is used for the chicken pox uses the chicken pox virus in it so, it would be logical to me that while you have never had a case of the chicken pox because the government now forces you to expose your body to the virus via the vaccine you have the ability to contract shingles.

Again I am not a dr but that is how I think it would be possible for someone your age to have shingles but never have "technically" contracted the chicken pox.

Re: I'm 14 and have shingles!!!

I read an article on shingles and the person who wrote it in my words thought it weird for people to get shingles after chicken pox. Because chicken pox and shingles are a similar virus. So I'm saying its more normal for people to get just shingles than both shingles and chicken pox. I'm a 16 year old girl who earlier this year had shingles and as a child had chicken pox, so i know the pain of shingles but I toughed it out and went to school. My dad made me pop the blisters and put hydrogen peroxide on them. And I mean drain them not pop like a pimple. That helped a lot which made the shingles go away within a week. I may have been lucky to have shingles on my right arm and shoulder.
