Caption

Rash caused by shingles (herpes zoster), seen two weeks after treatment. Shingles is a skin eruption, seen as the appearance of small yellow vesicles which dry up and heal by scabbing. The vesicles commonly form a belt around the chest or hips, as seen here. Shingles is due to a viral infection identical to chickenpox, and is most commonly seen in adult patients who have contacted chickenpox in childhood. The rash may be treated with a dusting powder of starch, zinc oxide and bismuth subnitrate, and the affected area kept warm with a cotton wool dressing.
