    Recurring shingles

    I am 49 years old and I recently suffered my twelve bout of shingles, with the first bout occurring at age 23. About a year and a half ago my physician prescribed for me a daily dose of Valacyclovir to try to prevent them, but since I recently experienced bout number 12, is it possible I'm building up a tolerance to the medication? They always occur on my face. Have you ever heard of such a thing? Is there any way to prevent number 13?
