Does schingles re-occur ?

A lady friend of mine had schingles last year. After consulting the doctor and medication she regained her health. Now, nearly a year later the burn and pain in her body is back ! Can she get medication over the counter, must she go back to the doctor? Is schingles dangerous if not treated ? Please help !!!

Angel, shingles is chickenpox that comes back to haunt you when you’re old or when your immunity is suppressed. You can get it more than once and the best would be for her to see her doctor so that he can give her the proper treatment. Good luck.
