Am recovering from psoriasis and think I should get shingles vaccine but am scared to as afraid will renew psoriasis all over again.
Actually, it's plausible that the Shingles virus could aggravate Psoriasis. Psoriasis exists because the skin is always in "injured" mode, thus the faster production of more skin cells. When Shingles hits the dermal area it affects, it could trigger the "injured" mode of Psoriasis. Just because they are two, separate things doesn't mean they're mutually exclusive.
