My husband came down with a rash about 4 days ago and finally got into the doctor. The rash is unilateral, a couple lesions on penis, left-side groin, left upper inner thigh and some around buttocks. Initially, a doctor felt is was herpes. My husband and I have been married for 10 years. So understandably, this has caused some stress. As for myself, I have never had herpes. The first doctor then felt it looked "odd" so asked another physician to look who then said it was shingles. Testing was done, no results yet
He is in quite a bit of pain. Does anyone have experience with shingles in this area and how long does the pain typically last (without post-herpetic neuralgia) and when does it peak? Any recommendations for how to deal with it? He is using lyrica.
