I am 65 and was diagnosed with shingles at the age of 17. I don't recall ever having chicken pox, as all 4 of my brothers had them. I do have recurring shingles on the same are 6 to 7 times a year. The pain is awful and the blisters and rash are even worse, They are not always in the same spot, but always on the same arm. I have been going through this for 48 years. Had the shingles vaccaine, but still get them. Doctors can only tell me I have a weakened immune system. I was very ill ladt year with the flu, strept throat, thrush and a lot more, but is there anyway I can boost my immune system and keep from getting shingles as it's painful?
