I know this wasn't addressed to me but I've heard of young adults getting shingles.. while I've never known of a child who had an outbreak I know that it's possible.  The medical field says that your chances increase dramatically over 60 years of age.  While it can often be pinpointed to severe stress both physical and mental, this is not the only cause for outbreaks.

Well that makes scense now. Afterall the enviroment we lived in wasnt the best. He also got Bells Pasly at age 14 and I think that is a related to Shingles as well if I am not mistaken.
:) sad to think how it effected him.

My doc said there are a lot of old-wives tales about Shingles. Like you can only get them once - not so. Like you can only get them on one side of your body - not so. Like kids don't get them - not so. And like the shot for shingles won't help if you have had them - not so.
