Is it unusual for 25 year old female to have shingles?

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

Blisters on side and belly with lots of pain. If her clothes touch it kills her.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

Nothing makes it better the wind or touching it kills her. She thought she had the flu last week with fever and felt terrible. This week she has this rash with blisters.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

She's had chickenpox and a younger age.

It is slightly unusual to get Shingles in a young lady.

Usually this happens in;

People above 60, diabetics, low body immunity, people who are on steroids or immunosuppressants and other reasons of lowered body resistance.

As she had flu which may have lowered her body immunity which may have predisposed for Shingles.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
