Prince Von A-Hole

I GOT SHINGLES!

Prince von A-Hole has been diagnosed with shingles -- a super-painful viral disease -- and according to his doc, it's all thanks to the chickenpox he had as a child.

Prince tells us he was feeling sick and his face was swelling -- so he went to the doctor Thursday morning, where he was told, "the chickenpox I had when I was 8 years old has returned and the virus gave me shingles."

According to Shingles.com, the condition is caused by a reactivation of the same virus that causes chicken pox ... which can lay dormant in your body for years.

Bad news for Zsa Zsa too -- it's contagious.

Shingles is caused by the Varciella Zoster Virus,ie he developed chicken pox and then after he got cured,the virus went to his Neuronal ganglia and hid there and remained dormant until the virus got reactivated might be through some other infection,bad disease,...similar to the herpes virus remaining dormant and causing secondary herpes.,yes i am doctor.

Shingles is only contagious in the beginning blister/puss forming period.... "Shingles is a contagious disease during the phase when patient develops blisters till the formation of crusts"... After that short 1 day period... it is not.

Shingles is not contagious. However, if you've never had chickenpox, being exposed to someone with shingles might give you chickenpox, not shingles. If you've had chickenpox, you're safe.

I just wanted to agree with what Lola said. Shingles is only contagious if you have never had chicken pox. In that case, shingles can transmit the chicken pox virus if somebody were to come in contact with the blisters or, sorry to be so graphic, but the pus from the blisters.
I had shingles a few years ago, and it was really quite painful. My face swelled up and I had Bell's Palsy for a few weeks. The painful nerve damage is only just now starting to go away. It is especially worse in the elderly. Many elderly people have committed suicide, including somebody I know, because the nerve pain was so bad. I truly hope he doesn't have to deal with such pain.
