I am 45, with health issues that create a weak immune system. I was diagnosed with shingles for the 4th time 9 days ago (breakout began 11 days ago). Shingles are on my head following the occipital nerves on both sides from temple to the low neck in a width of 2-3" max with one additional spot on the spine. I started Aclovar & a prednisone pack 9 days ago and 2 days ago I started a new breakout of shingles on my back that is quite large and today I got a large blister on the inside of my lip. The 1st round our shingles are still blistering and filling and they are now spreading toward my face (past my ear). Those new areas are only swollen and have not yet popped any blisters but you know it is coming by the way it feels. My doctor called in an antibiotic today and my glands feel swollen, I feel feverish, my ears both hurt & I feel all over miserable without discussing the pain from the actual shingles. My frustration is so high and I don't know what to do! I do I have pain Meds but they are my daily Meds & are not touching this! Does anyone have any suggestions because I could really use some encouragement and advice! Thanks everyone! I hope you are all doing better by now!!??????
