  1. A is the answer and the winners are Eze and Area.
    Details Below:
    Shingles occurs as a result of reactivation of the varicella zoster virus that is
    dormant in the nuclear DNA of dorsal root ganglia. Reactivation of the virus
    may occur as a result of a reduction of the host immunity. The virus tracks
    down the nerve axon to cause a skin infection in the area innervated by the
    sensory nerve and this is characterised by vesicular eruptions.
