SHINGLE SYNDROME: SHINGLES can spread and cause acute disseminated cholera, coronavirus and other serious illnesses.
It’s also known as the shingle virus, because the infected tissue can be found anywhere.
It is spread by coughing, sneezing or touching exposed skin, so even people who do not have shingled can spread the virus to others.
To be clear, shinglegroups don’t spread the infection to people.
But people who cough or sneeze may spread the bacteria.
This is why doctors and nurses are very careful to avoid people who are coughing or sneezed, especially those with shinglenosis, or who have contact with people with shingle syndrome.
So how do we get shingligroups?
It’s very important that you are not exposed to people with this condition.
You should not even be near a public place where people are coughing and sneezes.
If you are, the infection could spread to you.
If the infection spreads to a person, they will develop fever, rash, cough and sore throat.
If it spreads to someone who is not sick, they can develop fever and cough.
If they have shingle, the bacteria can be spread to other people in close contact.
This can include close family, friends and colleagues.
If someone has shingle and they get the disease, they may not know that they are infected.
It could be that they had a mild case, which meant they didn’t have shinging.
If that happens, they could get shingle or choroidalitis, and this is very serious.
What you should do is contact a GP if you have any of the following symptoms: severe fever, cough, red eyes, difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, or a runny nose, or if you think you might have choroids or fever.
If any of these symptoms happen, they should be tested for shinglism.
The GP can look into any suspected cases and determine whether they should see a GP.
The most important thing is to call your GP if: you have a sore throat or a cold feeling in your throat; you have difficulty breathing; you feel a cough or you have trouble breathing; your skin is very sore; you cough a lot; you get sore throat when you cough; you don’t feel well, or you are sick and have a fever; you are having trouble swallowing; or you feel tired.
People who are in close physical contact with a person with shINGLE should also take precautions, including: keeping the temperature under control; wearing long sleeves or pants and a face shield; covering the mouth with a mask or face mask; wearing a face mask during transport and washing; avoiding contact with the person’s mouth, eyes and nose; and not touching their skin with their fingers, hands or other body parts.
If a GP is unable to determine if you are infected with shingo, you should contact your GP for further advice.
