Hi I’m experiencing my first episode of shingles unfortunately. Started last Sunday but I thought it was sciatica Tuesday night the rash appeared and I got to the doc and started the meds within 24 hours. Rash is over half my butt and inside my buttock skin too a bit that bit is the worst as it rubs naturally and I can’t sit or walk without pain. Those blisters remain open and oozing all others have scabbed over. I finish the seven days of acylovir tomorrow evening. Should I ask to stay on it? And re pain control is there anything at all I can put on this rash? The open lesions I mean.
I’m presently on acylovir five times a day and Remedeine forte and ibuprofen as needed. Pain is less than it was and ok yes I went and got lysine too and I’m taking that three times a day to help too.
Thanks for any help. I intend to ask for the vaccination is it a year clear you have to be in uk??
