What effect does shingles have on face and eye on a 10 year old, and can immunisation be offered or does that become part of the healing process


highly contagious!


How Is It Treated?

Antiviral medications can make a shingles flare-up heal faster and reduce the chances of having complications. Not everyone needs to take antiviral medicines, though - your doctor will prescribe them if necessary. If you do need to take them, the earlier you start, the more effective they will be.
Antiviral medicines can't eliminate the virus from the body completely, so they won't stop someone from having future flare-ups.
To ease any pain that might come with shingles, doctors or nurse practitioners may prescribe a cream, spray, or skin patch to numb the skin. Some prescription and over-the-counter medications also can help treat pain. Don't take aspirin, though. It can put teens at risk of a rare but serious illness called Reye syndrome.
If you have shingles that itch, your doctor may recommend lotions or medicines called antihistamines.
Keep the rash area clean by washing with water and a mild soap. Apply cool, wet compresses to the blisters several times a day to reduce the pain and itching. Oatmeal baths also can bring relief.

Can I Prevent Shingles?

It's not possible to prevent shingles entirely. The chickenpox vaccine can make a case of shingles less serious. So if you haven't had chickenpox, it's not too late to ask your doctor about getting the chickenpox vaccine.
There is a vaccine against shingles, but doctors usually only give it to older adults. That's partly because the older someone is, the more severe shingles can be. As a teen, you're unlikely to be seriously affected by shingles.
If you get shingles, you can help keep the virus from spreading by keeping the rash covered at all times and getting treatment if you need it.
People with shingles can spread it pretty easily. Until their rash is completely healed, they need to stay away from newborn babies, pregnant women, anyone with a weakened immune system, or anyone who is not vaccinated against chickenpox. So teens who get shingles may need to stay home from school for a while. It all depends on the person and the situation. Your doctor will give you advice.
Shingles may sound scary, but that's mainly because of how it affects older people. The good news is that the infection doesn't usually happen to teens. And, even when teens do get shingles, it's usually not serious.

Why did they start the vaccinating for chicken pox?


A varicella vaccine developed in Japan in the 1970's was licensed for routine use in Japan and Korea in 1988. The varicella vaccine was recommended for routine use in the United States in 1995. In 2005 a combination measles, mumps, rubella, varicella vaccine (MMRV) was licensed.

Vaccines are routinely developed as a way to confer immunity against viruses for which there are very few drug cures available (unlike bacterial infections).

The vaccine is what you receive when you get a vaccination. A tiny dose of a synthetic analogue (a piece) of the virus is injected into your arm (or bottom). Your immune system responds to this like it is an actual infection and develops antibodies against it. The antibodies protect you from getting a real infection - usually for life. Some vaccines contain viral particles that have been killed (with heat usually). The pieces of virus that enter your body through the injection also bring about an immune response as if you had a real infection. Neither the pieces, nor the killed viruses can cause infection.

The latest chicken pox vaccines need to be boosted later on as adults since the protection wanes over the years. It's an excellent idea to get the booster, since the virus that causes chicken pox is responsible for shingles in older people - a painful condition that affects the nerves. The vaccine will prime your body to fight off chicken pox infections when you are exposed.

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.

Rash with small blisters in a line trailing under right shoulder blade from back to center of chest


It is very possible that you have Shingles. The virus that causes shingles produces a painful, burning line of blisters that follow a nerve in the body. Shingles is basically the adult version of chicken pox. If you have ever had chicken pox then your body contains the virus that causes shingles. There is treatment for this as well as a vaccination; however, you will need to see your doctor to receive the treatment.

How long does it take to find out if you have caught herpies shingles virus i work as a carer and one of my clients were diagnosed with it today


You can't catch shingles from someone else who has shingles. But a person with a shingles rash can spread chickenpox to another person who hasn't had chickenpox and who hasn't gotten the chickenpox vaccine.

If you haven't had the chickenpox and become infected, you will most likely see symptoms with 7-10 days.
