HIV AND CONSTANT BOUTS WITH SHINGLES IS THAT NORMAL WHEN VIRUS IS UNDECTIBLE ?
Jan 7, 2000

WHEN VIRUS IS UNDECTIBLE WHY DO I HAVE SO MANY REOCCURANCES WITH SHINGLES ?

Response from Dr. Feinberg

Unfortunately, there isn't a certain answer to your question. I've seen that in others as well. It may be that although your immune system has improved with good control of your virus, it still isn't normal, and can't recognize the virus that causes shingles like an HIV- person's immune system could.
