Shingles, also called herpes zoster, is a painful blistering rash that can appear anywhere on the body. Shingles is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox. Once a person has had chickenpox, the virus can live, but remain inactive in nerve roots within the body. If it becomes active again, usually later in life, the virus can cause Shingles.
