When I was in the sixth grade I broke out with shingles in my right eye. I am 19 now, and recently had another brake out in early April of this year on my right jaw bone. Both brake outs were localized. Should I be worried about an underlined cause such as cancer or aids?
Response from Dr. Feinberg
People without cancer or HIV also get shingles. If you have no other problems, the likelihood that these 2 episodes mean that you have a serious underlying disease is pretty remote.
