A girlfriend told me she got vaginal herpes or the herpes virus from shingles on her back. She said that she had scratched her back where she had a really bad shingles outbreak and then touched her vagina and it caused her to have vaginal herpes. Is this possible?????

While it may be possible to acquire an infection in the genital area from the shingles virus, it is not the same thing as genital herpes.

Shingles is caused by the herpes zoster virus, the same virus that causes chickenpox. Genital herpes is caused by the herpes simplex virus.
