SENTINEL TRIBUNE Wednesday, December 24, 2014 Page 8 season (BPT) - With flu season in full swing, many adults are visit- ing their health care providers to discuss ways to stay healthy. Have you thought about other potentially serious diseases you may be at risk for as an adult? Shingles, the common name for herpes zos- ter, is a disease caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox. Once a person has chickenpox, the virus never leaves the body. At some point later in life, quite unexpect- edly, this virus can reactivate and erupt as shingles - a red blister- ing rash that can be very painful. "People with shingles have described the pain as sharp, stab- bing, shooting, burning, throbbing and itchy," says Dr. Adriana Perez, PhD, ANP-BC, FAAN, assistant professor and Southwest Borderlands scholar at Arizona State University and co-director at the Hartford Center of Gerontological Nursing Excellence. "The first symptoms of shingles are often felt, but may not be seen, and may ini- tially include itching, tingling or burning in a specific area on one side of the face or body." Any person who has had chickenpox is at risk of developing shingles, and 98 per- cent of adults in the United States have had chickenpox. The shin- gles rash can last up to 30 days and appears most commonly on a single side of the torso, but can appear anywhere on the body - even the face. Dr. Perez says, "A per- son's risk for shingles increases as they get older. Because immune systems can weaken as people age, it becomes easier for shingles to break through the body's defenses."
