Hello,
Welcome to HCM,

The shingles or herpes zooster can remain dormant for many years in the nerve root ganglion. Following the herpes infection the virus will resides in the ganglion.

Whenever there is s triggering factors like other bacterial infection, dust,diabetes medicines or malnutrition which decreases the body immunity, the herpes virus gets activated and produces its symptoms.

This could be due to staph infection which you had and which as stimulated the dormant herpes infection and produced these symptoms.

Because of frequent infection you are having this features of depression.

Once your symptoms comes down you will be alright. You need to boost up your immunity by having good nutritious food and vitamin A and E.
Thank you.
