  • My father had it on his head an took a long time to get rid of it. It is a virus that attacks the body if you had chicken poxs when you were young.then you could get shingles later in life.

  • Yes, I have had a minor case of shingles and postherpetic neuralgia which is the complication that can last for awhile after the shingles clear up.
