Herpes Zoster Medications

Definition of Herpes Zoster:

Herpes zoster, also called shingles, is an infection caused by a herpesvirus (varicella-zoster virus). Herpes zoster results from activation of the virus, which in many instances has remained latent for years following a primary chickenpox infection. Once active, the virus will travel along a nerve to the skin and cause a rash.
