    I hate shingles. So sorry for your pain.

    Sadly, shingles pain can continue after the lesions are healed.

    Shingles is a disease of the actual nerve root.

    Definitely see a pain specialist.

    You might try a frozen gel pack...they are flay, do not leal, and remain cold longer.

    You can purchase one from the pharmacy.
