Shingles are they contagious?


The virus is spread through direct contact with fluid from the rash blisters caused by shingles. A person with active shingles can spread the virus when the rash is in the blister-phase. A person is not infectious before the blisters appear. Once the rash has developed crusts, the person is no longer contagious.17 Sep 2014

Are shingles contagious


Shingles is contagious if the lesions are recent and has secretions on them. Shingles it is caused by reactivation of Herpes Zoster Virus, which is from the family of the Herpes Virus, which includes STD Herpes Simplex. Sometimes people who had Varicella Zoster Virus, are the ones who might get eventually shingles.



The lesions have to dried up with Acyclovir treatment. 1 out of 3 people may get shingles in their lifetime. The herpes virus is dormant in nerve gang ionic cell in the central nervous system.



It might be activated by any stressor. It is manifested in dermatomal distribution associated with the nerve innervating a body area.



The anwer to your question it is YES

Mayo clinic website


Yes and no, you are actively shedding the varicella zoster virus (chickenpox). Shingles is a secondary infection from chickenpox. You can not give someone shingles but can spread the virus. The virus is dormant and then pops out again years later as shingles. You would want to avoid young children who have not been vaccinated.

I HAVE SHINGLES VERY PAINFUL, WHAT MUST I TAKE


  • Overview Herpes zoster, also known as shingles, is a secondary condition of infection with the varicella zoster virus (VZV), a virus of the family herpesviridae that also causes chickenpox. Because shingles is a herpetic viral condition, antivirals are the backbone of treatment, although the sometimes severe nature of symptoms and the potential for lasting negative effects means that other symptoms must be managed while the infection is active. There is no cure for shingles or any other herpetic condition, but there are effective treatments and shingles often clears up without further complications.
  • Antivirals Antiviral drug therapy administered as soon as possible after the appearance of shingles rash (within 72 hours according to the Mayo Clinic) is one of the most important elements of treatment for herpes zoster and is the sole component that actually targets the cause of symptoms (vs. managing them). The same drugs used in treating other conditions caused by herpes viruses are used in the treatment of shingles: acyclovir, valacyclovir and famciclovir. Valacyclovir and famciclovir deliver their active ingredients more effectively than acyclovir and can be taken less often than acyclovir.
  • Corticosteroids Corticosteroids like prednisone are also used in the treatment of shingles. The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) recommends a high initial dosage for several days which is slowly decreased over time. The AAFP reports that cortisone in combination with antiviral therapy reduces the pain associated with shingles. Prednisone may also decrease the chances of developing postherpetic neuralgia, a condition of severe and chronic pain that persists after the shingles rash has cleared up.
  • Pain Relief The AAFP recommends standard pain killers for shingles sufferers whose pain is not too severe, while reporting that narcotic analgesics may be necessary for severe pain sufferers. Other pain management techniques include the application of topical creams (calamine, capsaicin and lidocaine) and nerve blockers.
  • Postherpetic Neuralgia The Mayo Clinic reports that tricyclic antidepressants and anticonvulsant medications, along with capsaicin and lidocaine, are sometimes used to treat pain when it does not clear up along with the shingles rash (postherpetic neuralgia). D. Bowsher of the Pain Research Institute at Walton Hospital reports that traditional analgesics are not effective in managing the pain of postherpetic neuralgia and that the use of opioid may be necessary.
  • Other Treatments Bowsher recommends relaxation techniques alongside other treatments for postherpetic neuralgia. The Mayo Clinic recommends further techniques like transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), which may stimulate natural painkillers to be produced in the body, and a similar technique performed on the spinal cord or on peripheral nerves.
