Viral Infections
Please complete the following questions for your discussion post and response.

Please explain the difference between Chickenpox (infection of varicella) and Herpes zoster (Shingles)? What parts of the body are affected? Is the appearance of chickenpox and shingles similar in how they present themselves on the skin of the human body? What types of treatment is there to help ease the symptoms and is there medication a person can ingest to help cure the infection? There is a vaccine to prevent chicken pox and it is given to children. There is also a vaccine available to the older population for preventing shingles. If you were in that sub group, would you take the vaccine so that you would never have to deal with contracting the viral infection shingles? Why or why not?
