I've had shingles for about 5 weeks on one side of my back and chest. Unfortunately I did not get diagnosed until the second week, so I missed the opportunity to get the antivirals, however the doctor gave me fucidin h cream, a combination of steroid and antibiotic.
Now after 4 weeks of applying the cream several times per day, the rash has been progressively fading but on some days I am still having fatigue and nerve pain throughout my rib cage.
When I put on the cream, the pain subsides right away, but lately it seems to also give me shortness of breath and coughing that is quite annoying.
Any reason why the steroid/antibiotic cream would be giving me shortness of breath?
