I thought I was having shingles over and over for years. I even had a couple of doctors who told me it was shingles. It was on my lower back. Then my hep doctor sent me to a dermatologist and she said it was genital herpes. The valtrex worked great for it.
Most often, but not always you have an outbreak of shingles only once. If the nerve endings are damaged you can have years of pain from it, even though it is no longer active Some people don't get the pain and nerve damage though.
