Shingles

Shingles is a painful rash caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox. After a person recovers from chickenpox, the virus stays dormant (inactive) in the body. For reasons that are not known, the virus can reactivate years later, causing shingles. The risk of shingles increases as you age, so vaccination is recommended for adults over 50 years old.
