I Had No Idea Postpartum Shingles Were So Common — Until I Got Them Myself
In a few hours, I had another rash on the same side — a little spot across my shoulder and the back of my neck.
What the heck? I thought. How did I get more poison ivy, when the most nature I’ve seen in weeks is the parking lot outside the grocery store?
And so, I turned to Facebook, just like I do with all of my burning questions these days. I posted a photo of my rash and asked the good people of the Interwebs how on earth I could’ve gotten it. As friends started to weigh in, I knew this was more than just a bad case of poison ivy.
