Stress Emotional or psychological stress makes a person more prone to develop Shingles since chronic or intense stress weakens our immune system.
Increasing Age Shingles most commonly occur after 50 years of age. It is rarely seen in children, but older people are more prone to develop it due to compromised immunity.
Scab Formation: Over a period of seven to ten days blisters sometimes ooze a contagious liquid, start becoming cloudy and begin to flatten.
Gradually scab starts forming over the flattened blisters.
Shingles On Face: Shingles on the face appear in different areas.
They appear as a band over one side of the trunk, and can also develop over one side of forehead or eye. However, the other person will first develop chickenpox, not Shingles if the person never had a VZV infection earlier.
On the other hand, if a person has had Chickenpox earlier and he gets exposed to the VZV infection, there is a likelihood of developing shingles.
Skin Rash: Skin Rash in shingles appears as pink or red blotchy patches which appear in the form of a band over one side of the trunk(the most common site) along the nerve pathway.
The person can also feel shooting type of pain in the area of the rash. Blisters: Blisters are a cluster of fluid-filled eruptions that appear after the rash. The infection (VZV ) can transmit to other people through direct contact with the infected person.
