This book covers all applicable aspects of shingles disease, which is a reactivation of the same virus that causes chicken pox: Varicella zoster virus (VZV). Beginning with the history of the disease, this ebook traces a path through the pertinent elements of shingles disease including a detailed look at the immune response, symptoms, treatments, diagnosis, prognosis and epidemiology. This is a look at the development of the human response to shingles, which has been varied and ultimately followed a trajectory that intersects with modern scientific thought on vaccination and its consequences. Special care is paid to home and alternative treatments as well as a comprehensive look at what is upcoming in the future for shingles research and treatment development.
