Dear Doc,

Re: Shingles

1). Could mild shingles strikes or reactivate during ARS period?? (Just curius) Is fever and mild shingles alike?? 2). What CD4 level or counts could shingles starts to reactivate?

Thank you.

Response from Dr. Feinberg

Shingles look like chicken pox except that they are usually concentrated in one area of the body. Fever is clearly not shingles, and vice versa. It is conceivable that someone could have shingles during seroconversion.
