  • If you get shingles once, and are around someone with contagious chickenpox, you are VERY likely to get it again. My sis has had an out break like 6 times that I remember. She was miserable, so be careful.

  • I had shingles about 15 years ago---they gave me medication and it went away quickly. The Doctor said I would probably not get it again. It was itchy , a little bit sore,but not too bad because they gave me the medication right away. I had chicken pox when I was 8 years old....1949.
