Ever since I took the shingles shot I've had mild shingles and it has also, I believe, did more damage to my liver. I was diagnosed with Hep C in 1995, and took the Interferon, but in one year it has advanced to cirrhosis. I feel the shingles shot may have caused this! Has anyone else had any problems?

It can cause a rash that is considered to be like Shingles, but isn't actually Shingles, as well as administration site irritation, redness and dizziness.

However, it has not been listed to cause any liver issues, according to the FDA.

Are you on any other medications? What does your doctor think may have caused it?

Naturally the Doc says the shingles shot isn't to blame for anything! Strangely though, I have now developed genital herpes, which I have never had, and I'm 63! I was really sick and achy for about 3 days and then they appeared in the bend if my leg. Also I am a widow and haven't had any intimate relations in about 5-6 yrs. I just find it strange that all of this happened since I took this shot. I had a friend who was 64 and he also had Hep C. 2 weeks after he took the shot his liver failed and he died! Coincidence, maybe, maybe not. I don't know!
