      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.
