Hello! I had shingles for my first time, starting August 5th, though I had a heck of a time getting rid of it. I was hospitalized due to the severity of the pain. (My trigeminal Nerve behind my right eye) I was released then the antiviral pills ran out, I broke out worse then I had the first time. My eye sight in my right eye had been compromised starting August 19th due to light sensitivity. I am just NOW getting my eyesight to where I can watch TV, and drive with sunglasses on and go outside! ( because I was unable to do anything that contained light. I couldn't go outside, drive, or anything for weeks) Now I am getting back to normal.
Now the scars left behind are VERY deep, and crater-like. Me and my husband have been looking into Laser Scar Reduction, and I have a consultation next week. I am wondering your views on if it's too soon? Will it trigger shingles again? I do not understand too much about shingles.
I have had Cold Laser therapy to reduce the inflammation and it is a antiviral laser and has helped tremendously. (I Included a picture of that- "ouch" and "getting better"
But I want the scars to be as limited as possible. Included a picture of the scars now. I know they could be much worse, and I am blessed they aren't, but I would like to get back to my normal self.
