Because of all this new data coming out, it's time to reconsider isolation precautions in all hospitalized patients with herpes zoster, because the consequences of VZV transmission within a hospital where there are other patients nearby who have low immune systems could be absolutely devastating.
Oral medications such as acyclovir and its prodrug valacyclovir are the current gold standards for the treatment of VZV.

During a three-year period (2013-2015), 152 consecutive serum samples from hemodialysis patients were tested for the presence of HSV-1/2, VZV, CMV and EBV IgM and IgG antibodies at two large Croatian medical institutions (Croatian Institute of Public Health and Zagreb University Hospital Center).
All patients showed anti-VZV IgG antibody but none of the patient showed anti-VZV IgM antibody which indicates past infection of VZV.
Herpesvirus DNA was detected in 12 % of CSF, distributed as follows: 6 % CMV; 5 % HSV-1; 05 % EBV and VZV one each; 113 % enterovirus; two coinfections of enterovirus/CMV and one of HSV1/CMV.
Similarly in other developed countries successful vaccination against VZV is being done in general as well as selected population groups to prevent outbreaks.
However, it is unknown whether exposure to arsenic from environmental sources affects the VZV immune response.
Management of VZV infection in pregnancy: The implications of primary VZV infection in pregnancy for the mother and for the fetus vary with the period of gestation.
Vaccination with an attenuated live form of VZV acts by boosting declining preexisting specific cellular immunity, therefore avoiding VZV reactivation (30).
Immunohistochemical stain results for HSV1, HSV2, and VZV were negative.
