How long does it take to get over a very mild case of shingles?


An outbreak of shingles even if it appears to you to be a mild case can last anything from a week up to several months to go and remains in your body like a time bomb that may break out at any time when your immune system is low. 

Shingles remains dormant in your body once you have contracted the virus which causes it and it may flare up at different times or not at all during the rest of your life and can be triggered or set off after a bout of illness when your bodys defenses arnt as strong as usual or when you are feeling run down or depressed or your age may make you more succeptible to an outbreak also if you have HIV or AIDS and also some medicines which you might be given especially after the transplant of a body organ may trigger it and each time your body shows physical signs of shingles being there such as clusters of blister like spots and sharp needle like pains usually only down one side of your body and the blisters should be treated the same as chicken pox blisters as they are part of the same group of viruses called varicella zoster and some people think that you can contract shingles from a person who has chicken pox but it cant be contracted in this way but chicken pox may be contracted from a person with shingles whilst their blisters are at the weepy stage until they crust or scab over.

Symptoms of shingles include pain, numbness and tingling that occurs along a nerve line that wraps from the back to the front of the body, along one side. The rash may also occur on the face. A few days after the pain and tingling, a red rash forms over the same location. Blisters filled with clear, straw-colored fluid erupt along the reddened skin. The blisters break and scab over. Itching and flu-like symptoms, such as a fever, fatigue, achiness and a headache may also occur.
