Shingles, following a bout of chickenpox, the virus remains dormant in the nervous system. In certain instances, it reactivates and travels along nerves to the skin, giving rise to shingles. However, not all chickenpox survivors develop shingles. The exact trigger for shingles remains unclear, potentially tied to reduced immunity with age. The condition is more prevalent in older adults and those with weakened immune systems.
