Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Close-up of the lower back of an elderly female patient during an attack of shingles, also known as Herpes zoster. A red rash with blisters (vesicles) has appeared. Shingles is extremely painful and is due to the chickenpox virus (varicella-zoster) infecting the sensory nerves (in this case L2 spinal nerve). Dormant viruses survive for years in humans until the immune system is weakened by illness or old age and a shingles attack may occur.
