    My 37 yr old daughter has had both of these several times over the last 10 yrs. No one seems to know what to do other than treat with antibiotics after the fact.
    I have read both can be deadly if not treated. Is there a corlation between the two? Is there anything to do to prevent? Can a vacine be taken if you have already had the condition? She has also had 3 miscaraiges in last 2 yrs. Any corlation here?

    Dear An,

    With the history of recurrent cellulitis, shingles, and miscarriages there may be some underlying auto-immune condition.

    I would have your daughter see a rheumatologist to screen for lupus or other autoimmune disorders.

    Please keep us posted, I hope that helps
