Shingles is a viral infection that causes a painful rash. Although shingles can occur anywhere on your body, it most often appears as a single stripe of blisters that wraps around either the left or the right side of your torso. Shingles is caused by the varicella-zoster virus — the same virus that causes chickenpox.

At NNP, treatments include pain relief and antiviral medications. A chickenpox vaccine in childhood or a shingles vaccine as an adult can minimize the risk of developing shingles.
