How to use "Shingles" in context?

Shingles is a painful condition that can occur when the wearing away of the top layer of the skin (the epidermis) spreads contact fever (a condition caused by a virus) to the nerves that run below the skin. The pain can vary in location and intensity and usually lasts around two weeks. It is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible if you experience pain in one or more spots that doesn't go away after a few days. There is no cure for shingles, but treatment can help relieve the pain and prevent its spread to other parts of the body.
