Hello Nugrosz, thank you for your question


Herpes zoster or also called shingles is caused by the varicella zoster virus that stays in the ganglion around the spine after chickenpox has healed. This virus will be activated when the immune system decreases. Therefore, it is not surprising that chickenpox occurs only once, but shingles can recur.


Because it resides in the nerve ganglion, after the shingles skin lesions resolve, there may still be pain in the area, known as postherpetic neuralgia (NPH). This condition mainly occurs in patients who are over 50 years old, which can last for months to years, causing disruption in the activities of daily life. If you experience this, it would be better if you see a neurologist. The doctor will determine the best therapy for your father's current health condition. However, if there are still skin lesions that haven't healed, you can also consult a dermatologist.


Hopefully this information is useful
