My name is Harry Johnson. I will be brief and will only say that a few years ago I graduated from the Medical University of Vienna and now I work in Austria. Gaining knowledge was very exciting. Therefore, I decided to start this blog in order to share my knowledge about a dangerous viral disease and methods of its treatment – someone might find my advice helpful.
Shingles (or “herpes zoster”) is a dangerous viral disease fraught with serious complications. Shingles affects both men and women. Most often, it is diagnosed in 50+ year old people. However, due to deterioration of the ecological situation, the morbidity of this disease in young people has increased. According to the World Health Organization, 60–95% of the world’s population is infected with one or more herpetic viruses.
Shingles is contagious – the virus hides in the vesicles. A person can get infected with shingles only once in a lifetime, there is no recurrence of the disease. The only exceptions are people with AIDS and immunodeficiency.
This blog contains information about the pathogens of this disease, possible risk groups, symptoms and forms of the disease, consequences, and methods of treatment.
