  • What else can you tell me?  Is there a cure?
  • Well no...because it is Varicella zoster virus, the doctor prescribes a pain medication to help, as well as an antiviral medication to help with the blisters.  The worst part, is after blisters form, more blisters can still form!  Although it is the same virus that causes chickenpox, this lasts so much longer!!!!!  The symptoms can last from 4-6 weeks.  And you can get shingles multiple times!  It's not just for the old!
  • That's awful!!  I hope you feel better soon.
  • But it wasn't until 1953, when Thomas Huckle Weller isolated the herpes zoster virus, confirming the connection between chicken pox and shingles.  And a vaccination did not become available until 2006.
