Feel the burn with the Shingles Awareness Digi Blog Train

Oh look...another fun disease I can look forward to getting in about, uh...four years. Shingles (herpes zoster) is a painful, blistering skin rash due to the varicella-zoster virus, the virus that causes chickenpox.

After you get chickenpox, the virus remains inactive (becomes dormant) in certain nerves in the body. Shingles occurs after the virus becomes active again in these nerves years later.

The reason the virus suddenly become active again is not clear. Often only one attack occurs.

Shingles may develop in any age group, but you are more likely to develop the condition if:
*You are older than 60
*You had chickenpox before age 1
*Your immune system is weakened by medications or disease

If an adult or child has direct contact with the shingles rash on someone and has not had chickenpox as a child or a chickenpox vaccine, they can develop chickenpox, rather than shingles.

Happily, there is a vaccine for Shingles, so if you or someone you know falls into the at risk category, you should be sure to get that done.

As shingles often presents as a burning sensation (followed by red patches on the skin and blisters), I though burning up the road might be an appropriate presentation for the kit.

There are 10 (3600 x 3600 pixel, .jpg) papers and 30 elements in this kit along with one "gramps" poser. You are getting 5 leaves, 2 bows, 2 flowers, 2 frames, 2 ribbons, 1 awareness ribbon, 1 car, 1 city scape, 1 fire brad, 1 fire butterfly, 1 gas pump, 1 key, 1 leaf scatter, 1 pumpkin, 1 route 66 sign, 1 steering wheel, 1 stop shingles, 1 stop sign, 1 tag, 1 traffic cone, 1 tree, and 1 yield sign.

300 DPI. Personal use only, please!
