    her, please!,

     

    I am not a doctor and can't diagnose you, but herpes zoster (VZV), commonly known as shingles, and genital herpes (HSV) are two different, even if somewhat related, viral infections.  I'm not sure that they interact in the way you are proposing.  I think this is a question that is best for your doctor.

     

    Since you posted a while ago, it is likely you may have already asked your physician.  Please consider returning to the site to let us know how you are doing.  I'm sure your experience can help others on the site!

     

    Best of luck,

    James
