Ask the Doctor: Shingles

Health

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – In this week’s Ask the Doctor segment, we are talking about shingles, a virus that comes with a painful rash.

For more insight, News 8’s Darren Kramer spoke with Dr. Beth Collins. Collins is double board certified in plastic and reconstructive surgery.

Many of us don’t know how bad shingles can be until we get it.

Some of the questions we asked:

– What causes it?

– What are the symptoms?

– How is it treated?

– Who can get the shingles vaccine?

Check out the video above for Dr. Beth’s answers, and catch News 8 at 5 p.m. every Wednesday for our “Ask the Doctor” segments.
