Why is it that old people are prone to shingles... Both my grandparents have shingles right now... BTW, this is contagious right???

Yes it is contagious. Grandparents and old people are prone to this because of weakened immune systems. They probably got it when they share beddings or towels.

they look like chickenpox but they can be very painful.

it comes from the same virus that causes herpes and chickenpox.
