Were you looking for information about Shingles? Chingles is a common misspelling of shingles.
Shingles is a viral disease that occurs in people who have previously been infected with the varicella-zoster virus. It is most common in people over 50 years old, who have had chickenpox or the chickenpox vaccine, or who have weakened immune systems. Treatment for shingles typically involves antiviral medications, pain relievers, and temporary lifestyle changes. For most people, the lesions heal, the pain subsides within three to five weeks, and the blisters leave no scars.
