I recently got shingles on my forehead - which appeared as bumps (not blisters). I really thought it was a spider bite! It broke out on Tuesday, and broke open on Friday. I decided to wait it out over the weekend, but on that Sunday night I was in so much pain I could not sleep all night - headache that radiated from my forehead. I went to the doctor on Monday who diagnosed it as shingles and got Valtrex - 1000 mg 3 times a day for 7 days. On Tuesday morning I woke up with a lot of swelling above my nose and my right eye. Thankfully the swelling receded and the rash on my forehead is healing. I am still dealing with fatigue and body aches, although they seem to have improved. For the past 2 weeks I have had burning in both eyes and some redness. It may just be my allergies but I am a little concerned it may be due to the virus. I did not break out around my eyes - the rash was only on my right forehead. Should I be concerned?
