Not all shingles outbreaks are easily diagnosed.  My mother came down
with shingles in her ear canal.  It was very painful, lasting over a
month and was not diagnosed until she was finally sent to an
Otolaryngologist.  It also required scraping of her eardrum to prevent
loss of hearing due to scar tissue formation.

Can someone with shingles pass on chickenpox to someone who has not yet
had the disease or received the vaccine?   Many young children under the
age at which  the vaccine is given are cared for by grandparents.
