Risk Factors of Shingles
Shingles can be a contagious disease and can spread from one person to another. This is more predominant in children and adults who have never been affected by chicken pox. However, instead of getting affected by shingles, these people get affected by chicken pox. There are a few instances when herpes zoster can affect the face, particularly the forehead and the nose areas. In such situations, it is quite possible that it can affect the eye and in very rare cases lead to loss of vision. So, if you have shingles on your forehead or nose, get it evaluated by your health care professional immediately.
