I am a 31 year old male and had recovered from my first bout of shingles in May '17.
I was forunate enough to get diagnosed early and was started on Antivirals the day the rash appeared. The rash effected my eye brow and forehead. As far as the pain went, I was lucky enough to not experience severe pain that is usually associated with shingles.The area mostly itched and tingled. The rash cleared up in about a week and away with it went the icthing and tingling. The scars are still present on the effected areas but it should be noted that the marks on my forehead look more like traditional scars while the marks on my eyebrow area look similar to small pimples. (It's looked the same post recovery)
Very recently, I just noticed that when touching the scarred area on my eyebrow that I get a tingling / numb sensation on my forehead. I'm curious if this could be a sign that the Shingles are recurring or is this a case of Post Neuralgia? The numbing sensation is only felt when the scarred area is touched. Prior to my discovery, touching the eyebrow scars never resulted in the numbness.
Has anyone experienced something similar to this? Can Post Neuralgia show up despite not having any negative pain/sensation for 3 months?
