Shingles herpes zoster are caused by stress, injury, some medicines or other causes for people with elderly people and weak immune systems. The most common symptom of shingles is that in one part of the body ie left or right in one part the pain and ulcers.
Shingles herpes zoster is caused by the re-activation of the VeriSella-Jostar virus hidden in the Nerve Roots. Varicella zoster is a type of herpes virus that causes chickenpox. In most people, after chickenpox, these viruses are hidden in the nerve root. But in some people, it becomes active again and produces the Shingles disease. Anyone who has suffered a simple or severe chickenpox may have shingles when its immune system is weak. Due to stress, age, injury, certain medicines and diseases, the immune system get weak.
Shingles have many stages-
Early symptoms of the prodromal stage (symptoms before bark or dizziness) The initial symptoms are:
- Feelings of irritation
- Numbness or anaesthesia develop around the affected area. It can affect the chest, back, head, face, neck, and feet.
- Symptoms of flu, such as chills, stomach aches, diarrhoea etc. are signs that appear before or before.
Swelling of Lymph nodes
In this stage, the blisters and blisters come in the active stage. The blister is usually in a limited area and looks like rashes. These can occur in any part of the body, but the characteristics of the shingles are that they come to the left or the right side of the body. Rashes can range from ordinary to very serious and may have blisters along with colourless fluid, which becomes opaque in a few days. It takes two to four weeks to recover the ulcers. Chicks (the herpes zoster ophthalmics) near the eye, require immediate medical attention because this is very likely to weaken the vision. Shingles with barks have pain like needle pricking.
