PHN occurs most often in elderly people and in people whose immune systems have been compromised.

The pain of PHN, which occurs in the same area as the pain and rash of shingles, results from damage to nerve fibers during the shingles infection. Anyone who has had chickenpox can get shingles, but the disorder is most common in people over age 60.
