Lin-Manuel Miranda has shingles, the Broadway star revealed Thursday after thinking he had a migraine.

Miranda tweeted on Thursday that he had been diagnosed with shingles, saying he it caught early and that he had been quarantined from his 8-week-old son.

The Associated Press had reported that he also said on Twitter his ophthalmologist had blurred his eyes and that he was wearing a mask during treatment. But Miranda tweeted Friday that his mask reference and accompanying "Phantom of the Opera" gif were a joke, and his blurred eyes a part of his medical exam. He tweeted, "Sorry. I'm fine. Not wearing a mask."

Miranda said he was staying with parents nearby.

The 38-year-old wrote the book, music and lyrics and starred in the Broadway smash "Hamilton."

This story has been corrected to note that Miranda was joking on Twitter about wearing a mask.
