Shingles spring in athletes with weak immune system. Shingles is caused by a virus varicella-zoster and its initial symptoms are fever, painful itching, abdominal pain and fatigue.
What is shingles? What causes it? These questions must be arising in your mind. Here’s the infographic by Defense Soap about what shingle means, and just why you need to be aware of it for the safety of yourself and your loved ones:
Shingles on skin result into a itchy rash (after few days of initial symptoms). The rash eventually develops into small reddish fluid-filled blisters. This can sometimes be a warning sign of contagious skin infections in athletes.
Athletes should refrain from any form of exercise or sport that cause the immune system to be suppressed or the rash to get worse. If you have shingles and its getting serious, then it would be a good decision to visit your health expert or dermatologist.
Health is of utmost importance, after all.
