Living with shingles : new hope for an old disease by Mary-Ellen Siegel( Book )

8 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in English and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

MED The common name for the herpes zoster infection is 'shingles,' from a Latin word meaning 'belt,' the skin under which can be a common site for the infection. Shingles results from a reactivation of the varicella virus, also known as chicken pox, which has remained dormant in the nervous system until it erupts in painful, itching blisters. Until now, the 850,000 people who develop the painful viral disease each year in the United States have had few resources to consult. Siegel (The Cancer Patient's Handbook, 1986) and Williams (Have a Healthy Baby, Macmillan 1997) here attempt to fill that void. Their book is very basic, covering symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, complications, and prevention, with a few pages devoted to the benefits of and controversy surrounding the recently introduced varicella vaccine. Also covered are possible long-term complications, including chronic, often intractable, pain and blindness. A quarter of the book is given to a question-and-answer section that repeats much of the information provided in the first part. The price would lead one to expect more depth of coverage, yet since little else is available on this topic, libraries may wish to add this book to their health collections
