Is it possible that I developed shingles due to enormous stress I’ve been exposed lately? I’ve been to doctor and he prescribed therapy. Still. I am confused that it is possible that I could shingles because of stress. As I now people do not get chicken pox because of stress.

You should know first of all that shingles develops from the virus that causes chickenpox. The virus remains in the nerve tissue and can become active again in anyone who has had chickenpox especially people who have weakened immune systems because of stress, injury, or other factors. In the matter of fact no one knows what makes the virus active again. Meds may relieve discomfort from the rash and pain, but some people have pain that lasts after the rash is gone.
