Www.ShinglesInfo.com – Shingles Pictures and Information
What is Shingles? Many people wonder what that is when they are diagnosed with it or hear that a friend has it. The good news is that shinglesinfo.com provides information to better understand the affliction. Many don’t know that the virus that causes chickenpox is believed to be the same virus that causes Shingles. Therefore it is believed that if you have had a case of chicken pox, you could be at risk for shingles later in life. I’ve known people with shingles and it can be very painful. In fact, I’ve heard one of them yell in pain. At first she didn’t know what it was. When she showed it to me, it looked like a rash and I told her that she probably ate something she was allergic too. But after a few days, the rash didn’t go away. Then, she said that it was getting painful, as if her skin was burning. Sometimes, it is hard having something and not knowing what you have. Finally, she did what every one should do and went to see her doctor. Her doctor said she had shingles and she had never heard of it prior to his statement. However, she soon learned that it was very prevalent, especially among older people.
If you have never heard about Shingles, you are not alone. Luckily, there are many great resources to learn about this condition. In fact, on the www.shinglesinfo.com site, you can take a risk assessment to help you better judge if you might be at risk for it. Seeing what my friends have gone through, I hope nobody has to experience this. You can also look at pictures of Shingles to see what they look like. Some of the cases are very mild. Unfortunately, many of the shingles pictures are horrendous. I can only imagine the pain that accompanies some of those rashes. If you have this condition or think you do, you should talk to a doctor. If you haven’t been diagnosed with shingles, don’t jump to conclusions. Let the experts make a diagnosis and then suggest courses of action that are in your best interests.
My friend was given a prescription and she said that helped her Shingles outbreak. Only a doctor can write a prescription, so you should see one if you suspect you have this health issue. I am worried that I might get it because I took the risk assessment on the shingles info page. I think it is something we should all be knowledgable about, but I don’t think it makes sense worrying about something that may not happen. Just remember the important information that you learned about it in the event you need to recall it. I also think regular check ups are a good idea, as they can potentially identify possible problems on a routine basis.
If you are seeking medical attention for a concern regarding shingles, you might want to formulate questions in advance to talk to your doctor about. On www.shinglesinfo.com page, you can even find some help with formulating your questions about the condition. I find it very helpful to bring a tape recorder to my medical appointments. I always ask permission to record the session. The doctors are usually always very nice about letting me record our discussion about my health issues because sometimes I don’t remember everything. If you are like me and you don’t remember everything the doctor tells you, you might try that technique. It also is very helpful to adequately prepare your questions about shingles and bring that list of questions with you to the exam room. Invariably, if one doesn’t write them down, they will forget. Don’t be afraid to pull out your questions and go through them one by one. If anything, that will impress the doctor by showing you are really interested in learning about your present condition. Furthermore, in my opinion, I think it will show you respect and appreciate his authority. I must tell you, I also believe I get better feedback when I do have a list and my recorder going during the question and answer session. If I had shingles, my first question would be what treatments are available for the rash. From what I understand, the condition is considered part of the herpes family. More importantly, I would definitely want to know if their is a cure for shingles available as well.
