Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Shingles rash on the forehead of a 76-year-old man. Shingles (herpes zoster) is the result of infection of sensory nerves by the varicella- zoster virus, which also causes chickenpox. The virus can remain dormant in the nerve tracts that emerge from the spine. When re-activated, rashes appear on the skin supplied by the affected sensory nerve. In this case, the rash has occurred along the superior (ophthalmic) sensory nerve (known as V1 distribution). This nerve supplies sensation to the forehead and other areas of the face.
