Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

No they are not related.

Shingles is caused by the reactivation of chicken pox virus.

There is no similarities between them.

Hence, your HSV1 and 2 levels should not be affected by shingles.

Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
