Shingles

I had shingles at the age of 11. I am now 25 and my 4 year old son has chicken pox. My body where the shingles was has been numb and tingly for a few days. is it likely that I am getting shingles again?

It could be - watch it carefully - if you see the first sign of blisters developing, go to your doctor and start an antiviral like Zovirax within 24 hours.
