How to Prevent Shingles?

Q:
How to prevent shingles?

A:
Shingles is a viral infection that causes a painful rash. After you get rid of chickenpox, the remaining virus may result in shingles.

Here are some measures to keep you away from shingles:

  • Get the shingles vaccine: The vaccine greatly reduces your chances of getting shingles, despite not being a guarantee, especially for people over 60.
  • Do not avoid those infected with chicken pox. Being in the presence of the chickenpox virus again is a hidden blessing, because it once again boosts your immunity to VZV, which in turn works to prevent shingles.
  • Build a healthy immune system. A strong immune system always helps you fight against diseases.
