I had a case of shingles about 2 moths ago on my inside right calf, & noticed a couple of spots on my outer right thigh 2 days ago. They itch & burn in a similar way to the first outbreak but I can't say I've noticed any unusual pain as I often experience pain along this nerve anyway. My question is, I'm on holiday in the UK & am unsure if I need to get another antiviral for this outbreak (I took it the first time). I'd rather not go through the hassle of dealing with travel medical insurance or sitting for hours in a dr's office if it's unnecessary! I'm just not sure if I am supposed to treat each outbreak in the same way as the first. Any advice is appreciated as tomorrow will be the 3 day period since the rash appeared. Thanks!
