Oh no Ryleigh!! I'm so sorry to hear about that. No I haven't had had shingles but I know that it is a horrible condition. Are you on any antiviral medications? Try not to touch your eyes and other sensitive areas. Get plenty of rest and take care of yourself.

If I remember correctly, shingles are adult chickenpox (you get it even though you've had the chickenpox before). I think, though, it usually only happens in elderly people, but people with a weak immune system are probably also more likely to get it.

That souds about right Keri. I think you can only get it if you have had chickenpox previously. There is a dormant virus in your system after chickenpox that can be reactivated (if you will) when your immune system is suppressed that causes the shingles.
