I had shingles afew years back, and occaisionally I'll get one or two "mini" blisters in the same area...also with some numbness or tingling. Has anyone out there had the same experience? Wondering if this is just long-term side effects or something else going on? Would appreciate any info at all. THANKS!! (cd4 214 VL 700)

Are you currently on Meds? If so, depending on when you started, your recurrent outbreaks could be caused by immune reconstitution...meaning your immune system is letting the shingles know its able to recognize it as an invader. If not, then you might want to start therapy.
