Hi - Just joined this message board as I was diagnosed w/ shingles recently. I would not discourage anyone from getting the immunization but I DID get it about 5 years ago and I have quite a case; mostly abdomen around to side on left side; also left arm, left leg and left chin. My biggest concern is it not going higher than my chin. On Valtrex for about 3 days now and using calamine lotion so hopeful it will go soon. Thought I would only get very mild case if at all after immunization. I'm SURE stress is a big part as I have been going thru a bit.
I think I'm hearing that unless it's really close to eye or in it; just continue with anti virals and regular OTC pain meds?
They are YUCKY.....
