Our expert says:
Shingles is a life-long disease and can appear after disease or illness or while under a lot of stress. The virus is dormant in the spinal cord and appear as a painful rash. Shingles can be treated with Famciclovir tablets and she will have to consult her doctor for an examination and treatment, as chronic pain in the area of a previous infection is treated differently.
