Dear lybrate user it is caused by varicella zoster virus it is the same virus which would have caused you chicken pox in childhood, it remains dormant in our spinal cord and attacks when immunity gets low so virus being secondary its mainly our immunity which has to be boosted by internal constitutional treatment.
