Were you looking for information about Shingles? Shingals is a common misspelling of shingles.
Shingles is a viral disease characterized by a painful skin rash. It is caused by reinfection with the varicella-zoster virus, the same virus that causes chickenpox. People over the age of 50, people who have had chickenpox or the chickenpox vaccine, and those who have weakened immune systems are more likely to develop shingles. Although there is no cure, there are medicines that can shorten the length and severity of the condition.
