Both conditions are from the herpes virus family. Herpes Zoster as opposed to Herpes Simplex (coldsores or genital sores, I v II). It's a mongrel of a virus and lives in the nerves where various conditions can waken it up. Shingles is a whole world of hurt and no fun at all. If you have Shingles you can cause a Chicken Pox outbreak in someone who is not immune to it.
