Hello and welcome to HCM,
A needle stick injury
can transmit only the blood borne diseases. There are many viruses which are transmitted by blood route.
HIV, Hepatitis B
, Hepatitis C
, CMV are the common viruses transmitted by blood route.Shingles
is caused by varicella
This virus is not transmitted by blood route.
Shingles is caused by reactivation of dormant virus in the nerve ganglia.
A fall in immunity leads to reactivation of the virus and manifestation of shingles.
You need to visit your doctor for anti-viral treatment.
If you are suspicious of acquiring any blood borne infection, you can get the tests for these infections.
Thanks and take care
Dr Shailja P Wahal
