Cellulitis and shingles

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
