Question

I think I have caught Shingles

I have a patch of blisters on my one buttock which I think is shingles. I have been going to my local beauty salon and lying on their sunbed, I'm sure that I caught the virus there, is this at all possible?

JC, I really doubt that you caught shingles from the sunbed, but overexposure to UV rays may have initiated it. If you’re interested in more information on shingles (Herpes Zoster), mail me at netdoc@mweb.co.za and I’ll “cut ‘n paste” you something. Good luck.
