In brief: Where did the zoster

(shingles) occur on your body? Same area or different? Sometimes herpes simplex relapses can look like shingles especially on the butt.

In brief: Possibly

If you have had varicella related eruptions on 4 occasions so far you may have an isolated immune deficiency that prevents you from forming protective antibodies.
An evaluation through your pcp or with an immunologist could help you get a specific answer & may provide you way to avoid future outbreaks.
