View of the buttock of a 75 year old man during an attack of shingles, also known as Herpes zoster. A red rash with blisters has appeared which is extremely painful and is due to Herpes infecting the sensory nerves. Shingles is caused by the chickenpox virus (varicella-zoster). Dormant viruses survive for years in humans until the immune system is weakened by illness or old age.
