Illustration of the shingles infection. Shingles is a viral infection resulting from the reactivation of the chicken pox-shingles virus, the virus that is responsible for chicken pox. The first infection leads to chicken pox, then the virus hides in the sensory nerve ganglions where it can remain latent for decades. Its secondary reactivation leads to shingles.
