A. writes to tell me today that her daughter now has shingles. Get well soon H. Courage A. and S.

Shingles is caused by the same virus as chickenpox (varicella-zoster). Whilst children get chickenpox, adults get shingles. Immuno-depressed people, such as those with leukaemia, are particularly prone to infections such as this.

Will be thinking of you.
