Shingles is an infection of the skin, occurring mostly in adults. Main symptoms of shingles include the development of small blisters on the chest and face. The symptoms may be coupled with a fever and headache. Shingles needs to be diagnosed as soon as possible, so that due the viral origin of the disease, a course of antiviral medication can be started.

Shingles – Herpes Zoster

Shingles, or herpes zoster, is an infectious disease which is caused by the virus varicella-zoster from the group herpes virus. Similar to other diseases in this group, this infection develops in two stages where the first stage typically occurs in children, commonly known as chicken pox. This disease develops only once in a lifetime, in contrast to shingles, which has a second stage of infection and can occasionally reoccur.

Development of Shingles

Shingles can develop at any age, though it is most commonly found in older people, when the course of the illness is typically more painful and more severe. Because there is effective treatment available, it is in the patient's best interest to visit a physician and take the required medications, should there be any suspicion of shingles.

Symptoms of Shingles

Symptoms of shingles include small painful blisters that typically appear on the skin, though these appear only if the patient has had childhood chickenpox. After the skin has healed, varicella zoster migrates along the spinal cord to nerve nodules, or in the head for long-term survival. When favourable conditions occur, such as reduced immunity, the virus travels along the nerve fibers, causing small blisters in the areas where the nerves pass under the skin. This is usually coupled with severe pain which may persist until the skin clears up. Typical locations for the development of shingles are the intercostal nerves in the chest, and some parts of the face around the first branch of the trigeminal nerve, near the eye. Because blisters appear gradually, we can find them in different stages of development on the same patch of skin. Shingles last 2 to 4 weeks, after which the blisters dry out and form scabs, often leaving scar. The development of shingles can cause a variety of symptoms, often misleading doctors to diagnosing acute appendicitis or biliary colic instead. Typical symptoms are severe pain in the affected side of the body, occasionally accompanied by a fever and headache.

Transmission of Shingles

The virus Varicella zoster is one of the most common human illnesses. In recent years it's number of cases has been rising and is estimated to affect more than 90% of the population, without regard for age or gender. Transmission occurs by direct contact with infected bodily fluids such as saliva, ejaculate or intercourse. There is also a higher risk of infection from a person with chickenpox. The risk of transmission from a patient already affected by shingles is much lower and the transmission from a patient with fully developed shingles is not possible, therefore it is not necessary to limit contact with patients that have shingles. People who have not yet had chickenpox are more at risk of contracting varicella zoster virus for the first time. Higher care is necessary with pregnant women who could put the fetus at risk should they come in contact with the virus. The virus can be transmitted through a so-called transplant path from the mother to the fetus. However, it is most dangerous for the mother.

Complications of Shingles

As in other illnesses, shingles can have a whole host of complications. The most common complication is a bacterial super infection, secondary bacteria to the blisters. This is mostly found in older people and in patients with an impaired immune system. Other complications are persistent neuralgia and severe burning or stabbing pain which can last even after the shingles has been healed. Damage to the eye, in the form of swelling of the cornea or corneal perforation can also occur. The concern is with more serious complications that can include meningitis, encephalitis or paralysis of the facial nerve.

Diagnosis of Shingles

It is not difficult to diagnose shingles. A diagnosis stems from s clinical examination the basis of which is a physical exam. The anamnesis should focus on the history of childhood illnesses and the characteristic of the symptoms before the blisters developed. In case of doubt, it is possible to draw blood which will show if the virus is present.

Treatment of Shingles

The treatment of shingles is in the overall administration of antivirals. This treatment helps to significantly reduce the healing process of shingles and significantly reduce pain and other unpleasant complications. The main goal for the affectivity of the medication is its timely administration and accurate compliance with all therapeutic measures. This is very important especially if the symptoms are severe, the patient's condition is complicated by another dangerous illness or the patient has an impaired immune system. Apart from antiviral drugs, the patient also receives anti-inflammatory cream and pain medication that help his state of health as well as the patient's psyche. An essential part of the treatment of shingles is overall rest, avoiding stressful situations, and avoiding major physical activity.

Prevention of Shingles

There is no effective prevention against shingles. There are several vaccines on the market that have a relatively high success rate, especially against severe cases of the illness. Their main goal is to minimalize possible consequences of the illness. As an effective preventative method of shingles we can strengthen our immune system, which is done by limiting stress and fatigue, getting plenty of fresh air and a balanced diet.

I was so depressed when my ex left me for another woman. it made me felt like i was not relevant and my heart and love life was seriously destroyed. i could not concentrate in anything i was doing. i went online and searched for help but could not find any genuine spell caster until i went to Ocala Florida to visit my aunt to ease the depression and loneliness. when i got to Florida, i explained to my aunt who then felt pity for me and told me the secret she have not told anyone about the success in her marriage with her man. she then took me to the temple of powerful Dr. Ugo Wonders whom i met and explained my problems to. he promised to help me because of my aunt. i trusted his words and provided him with the materials needed to help me get my ex back and to my greatest surprise, after 48 hours of casting the spell, my Ex cam back on his knees begging for me to forgive him. i was shocked and surprised at the magic. we are happily married now and everything is working fine with us.I promised Dr. Ugo that i will never keep this a secret because he brought back my life and my world and that i will hare my testimony to the general public.
My advice goes to any one out there who is emotionally depressed or having any similar relationship problem, to contact Dr. Ugo wonders the ultimate spell caster via his direct email or call his temple line on +1 386-336-9876 he is the best in Florida....

My mind, for some reason, wont let go of my memory's of My Wife. I had a very big problem with my wife few months ago, that lead to her leaving me. All efforts to get her back proved abortive. one day while going through the internet i saw so many testimony of this great man called Dr.Goodluck and how he helped people with all kinds of problem, his advert was everywhere,. Although I never believed in spell casting, but I had no choice than to give him a try so i contacted Him, I was so desperate to have my wife back with me once again. So I did all he told me to do. He told me thatmy wife will come back to me in the next 17hours after the spell is completed. I was skeptical. He casted the spell for me and i was so anxious waiting to see or hear from her, it was just 14hours after the spell was done my wife called and said she was coming HOME and she was asking for forgiveness for her ever hurting me before…..It was a dream come through for me!!! that was how my family and relationship was save and our relationship is now stronger than advice to you out there facing same problem or even worst then mine cry no more and contact this great man called Dr Goodluck He's capable of handling any kind of problem.

I just want to thank Dr Lewis for giving me my life back …I thank GOD that I did find him…I fell 2million% better…I don’t know how I could have gone on with out him …every one there should be commended for the truly awesome thing Dr Lewis is doing… I had separated from a 10 year marriage and had experienced several sexual partners after the separation. About 6 months of episodes of unprotected sex, I developed itching and burning in my genitals and the appearance of clusters of fluid filled lesions in my vagina and buttock. I also developed a fever and swollen glands in the groin. I had episodes of extreme pain on passing urine. My sexual activity came to a rapid stop because of extreme pain. I also developed a vaginal discharge. I saw my doctor who took swabs and told me that I most probably had Herpes. I was given tablets, which helped. Two months after the tablets I again had a recurrence both of my vaginal pain and the rash on my buttock. I took a blood test and verified I was positive with the HSV2 virus. I was so frustrated and depressed, I felt like my world had come to an end. Then I started searching for help from one place to the other, I used so many medication, all to no avail. Until one day when I read online on Dr Lewis herbal remedy cured a man with a with virus, the testimony sparked a hope in me, then I contacted him immediately, after getting the medication from him, I used it for just 7 days as instructed by Dr Lewis. Following the course of treatment (with the herbal medicine) the lesions on MY buttock completely healed and I have not had any recurrence of the vaginal irritation since. I tested after the 90 day waiting period I tested negative and has remained HSV free since. I'm sharing my testimony because Dr Lewis temple was the first place where I found hope on my journey. Dr Lewis has done amazing things in my life and I hope that my testimony will help someone that may be in a situation that I was once in. Contact him today. Email:, WhatsApp: +2347067468416.

He can also cure the following:
