What is causing hair fall and shingles?

I am 63 yrs old,have had 2 transplants, kidney and pancrease, my hair started thinning real bad around Thanksgiving, now my face is broken out in what I think is shingles , it has spread from my forehead and is now advancing to my upper neck. My eyelashes have also started breaking and falling out. This has all happened in less than a week. I put heroic in on the breakout spots and it seems to help
