Shingles affects the nerves that supply certain areas of the skin. Five days after infection with shingles, a rash appears with red spots that quickly turn into blisters. Within 3 days the blisters become yellowish and dry, leaving small, pitted scars. Treatment is with acyclovir - an antiviral drug.
