I know. If you hang around kids with chickenpox it boosts your immune system against the virus.
The reason there have been so many cases of shingles recently is because they started vaccinating children against chicken pox, and with so few kids having chickenpox, adults don't get that natural boost to their immune system.
When you get old and your immune system weakens, you may stop producing enough antibodies against the virus to fight it off if it comes out of it's dormant state. Vaccines or other exposure to the virus induces the production of more antibodies, so if the dormant virus does activate, your body will be prepared.
Well, I'm screwed, I'd have a heck of a time finding a kid who wasn't vaccinated. I'll just hope my one brother in law is nuts enough to not vaccinate his kid... but then they still might not get it because of all the other vaccinated kids.
don't worry. I have a red mark (kind of like a birth mark) on the bottom of my neck and chest and when I talk it gets brighter....it's just where my blood vessels are close to the thin skin (it's the same reason why our lips are red). But people think its a rash or poison ivy, or ring worm. Quite irritating.
It's already been checked out . I have a Doctor and dermatologist following me twice a year.
