What is Shingles?

Shingles is a viral infection that causes a painful rash, often with blisters. It is caused by the varicella-zoster virus, the same virus that causes chickenpox. Shingles can affect anyone who has had chickenpox, and the virus may reactivate years later. Early prevention can help manage the symptoms and reduce the risk of complications; visit Colecross Pharmacy for shingles relief in Chelmsford today!
