    Jako dziecko chorowałem na ospę wietrzną.
    Jako 40-latek złapałem półpaśca, od którego synek "złapał" ospę
    wietrzną.

    Polpasca nie zlapales tylko uaktywnil sie uspiony w twoim organizmie
    wirus ospy. Druga czesc zdania jest prawdziwa : osoba chorujaca na
    polpasiec moze zarazic inna osobe ospa wietrzna.

    To znaczy, że z ospy wietrznej nie można się wyleczyć?
    Podobnie jak z opryszczki?

    Nie, dorosły, który NIE chorował na ospę w wieku dziecięcym , po zetknięciu się
    z wirusem ospy zachoruje, raczej na półpaśćca.
    Aczkolwiek widziałam już przypadek ospy u osoby dorosłej.

    Wadera, niestety opowiadasz glupoty. Jeszcze raz powtarzam : zeby
    zachrowac na polpasiec trzeba miec utajony w plynie mozgowo-
    rdzeniowym wirus varicella zoster jako pozostalosc po ospie
    wietrznej.
    Dorosl, a szcegolnie starsi ludzie, czesciej byc moze czesciej
    (statystycznie) choruja na polpasiec niz na ospe dlatego, ze
    wiekszosc wlasnie na ospe chorowala w dziecinstwie. Ospa u osoby
    doroslej ma zwykle bardzo ciezki przebieg. Mozje dziecko mialo w
    wieku 18 miesiecy ospe z dwiema krostkami na krzyz. Moj maz, wowczas
    43-letni, zarazil sie od dziecka i wygladal prze tydzien jak zywy
    trup.



    Shingles

    Published by BUPA's Health Information Team
    February 2004

    Shingles causes a painful rash of small blisters that typically
    appear on the body, often in a band on the chest and back. The virus
    that causes shingles is called varicella zoster. This is the virus
    that causes chickenpox.

    After having chickenpox, the varicella virus lies dormant in the
    spinal cord. If the virus reactivates in the spinal cord it causes
    shingles.

    Chickenpox and shingles

    Chickenpox is very common in children, and usually only causes mild
    illness. Once someone has had chickenpox, they are immune to further
    infection. However, the varicella zoster virus which causes
    chickenpox remains in the body for life.

    Normally, the varicella virus lies dormant and does not cause health
    problems. But if the immune system, which normally protects the body
    against infection, is weakened the virus can reactivate. When
    reactivated, it causes shingles, which can be more serious than
    chickenpox.

    The medical name for chickenpox is varicella zoster and for shingles
    it is herpes zoster.

    Who is most likely to get shingles?

    Shingles can affect adults and children, but is much more common in
    older people. It can not be triggered by contact with someone who
    has chickenpox.

    Reactivation of the virus is more common in elderly people whose
    immune system is weakened. There are various possible causes of
    this:

    conditions that affect the immune system, including HIV infection
    periods of increased stress
    excess alcohol intake
    long term courses of steroids
    chemotherapy or radiotherapy - cancer treatments
    medicines used after organ transplants (immunosuppressants)

    Common sites for shingles

    Symptoms

    The first symptom of shingles is often over-sensitivity or burning
    sensation on the skin in the affected area. After a few days, a rash
    develops. It usually appears as a band, following the route of a
    nerve under the skin.

    At first, the rash consists of small red spots and reddened skin in
    the same area. The spots then turn into small blisters, which dry up
    after a few days, and gradually form scabs. Once the scabs have
    fallen off, a small pock-mark may be left.

    Shingles is often a painful condition. As the virus affects the
    nerves, the pain may continue after the rash has cleared, sometimes
    lingering for weeks, months or even years. This is called post-
    herpetic neuralgia. It is more likely in older people and in people
    who had a severe rash.

    Possible complications

    Complications are more likely in people who have a weakened immune
    system.

    Shingles can affect the face near the eye. If this happens an
    ophthalmologist (specialist eye doctor) should be consulted because
    the surface of the eye can be scarred, which can damage vision.

    Shingles can also affect the ear, causing earache, dizziness,
    deafness and paralysis in the face. This is called Ramsay Hunt
    syndrome. Pain usually improves after about 48 hours, but
    occasionally hearing can be permanently impaired.

    Encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) is a very rare complication
    of shingles. Symptoms can include high fever and confusion.

    Shingles during pregnancy can be serious. Pregnant women who get
    chickenpox or shingles have a higher than normal risk of developing
    pneumonia. In rare cases, an unborn child exposed to varicella
    zoster can be damaged or may be miscarried. However this is less
    likely with shingles than chickenpox.

    When to see a doctor

    Often the symptoms of shingles are mild and no medical treatment is
    needed. However, anyone who recognises the symptoms of shingles
    developing early on should go and see their GP as soon as possible.
    Early treatment can be effective at reducing the severity of
    symptoms and the risk of complications.

    Urgent medical treatment is required if the following symptoms
    develop:

    high fever
    confusion
    loss of memory
    exhaustion
    severe headache
    any symptoms affecting the eye area
    Other people who should see their GP include:

    people with a weakened immune system (see above)
    pregnant women
    Diagnosis

    Tests are not normally needed to diagnose shingles, because the type
    and location of the blisters are usually distinctive. However,
    sometimes a test to identify the varicella virus is carried out.
    This involves a blood test to measure antibody levels in the blood.

    Is shingles infectious?

    Shingles is not infectious in the same way as chickenpox, where the
    virus can be passed on in coughs and sneezes. However, shingles is
    contagious. This means it can be passed on by direct contact. Fluid
    from shingles blisters can cause chickenpox in people who are not
    already immune. People with shingles should avoid those with a
    lowered immunity (see above).

    What is the treatment for shingles?

    Medicines

    An antiviral medicine such as aciclovir, usually taken as tablets,
    is effective if taken at the early stage of the illness. The
    medicine helps control the rash and minimise damage to the nerves,
    reducing the likelihood of lingering pain and other complications.

    The tablets may also be used to prevent an outbreak of shingles in
    people who have a weakened immune system and who come into contact
    with the illness.

    The pain of shingles may be relieved by painkillers such as
    paracetamol. Always follow the instructions.

    Calamine lotion may help to soothe the rash.

    Recovery

    There is no cure for shingles. However, the symptoms can be
    controlled, especially if treated at an early stage before the
    blisters begin to appear. Most attacks clear up on their own.
    However, shingles can recur.

    Can shingles be prevented?

    Immunisation with the varicella vaccine can protect people from
    chickenpox. The vaccine involves a single injection for children
    under 12 and two injections for teenagers and adults. However, there
    is no evidence that immunisation against chickenpox will prevent
    shingles later in life.
