Shingles can be a very painful virus, the first symptom of which is usually a tingling, sharp, burning pain under the skin, followed after 1-3 days by a red rash and blisters.
Shingles is caused by the same virus as chickenpox (varicella zoster). After a bout of chickenpox the virus lies latent in the nerve cells near the spinal cord. It remains there for life and can be reactivated at a later stage as shingles. Anyone who has had chickenpox can go on to develop shingles.

Help protect your baby from whooping cough by protecting yourself and your family.
Whooping cough (pertussis) is a highly contagious disease. It usually begins just like a cold, with a runny nose, tiredness and sometimes a mild fever. Coughing then develops, usually in bouts, followed by a deep gasp or 'whoop' (but not everyone has the classic whooping sound).
Unfortunately, whooping cough is more serious in babies, especially the first 5 months when they are too young to be fully vaccinated. Contact us to arrange an appointment. A charge applies
