Shingles

Shingles

Shingles, caused by the varicella zoster virus comes from the same virus that causes chicken pox. After you have recovered from chickenpox, the virus remains dormant in your spinal cord until it gets its second punch and reappears with a painful rash that looks like a band or strip of blisters on one side of your body and wraps around the other, or even on your neck, nose or forehead. There are numerous treatments that Dr. Nicolaides and his team can perform, which includes the use of an anti-viral medication.
