I am super frustrated right now...4 weeks ago I had my initial breakout (my 4th time having shingles at the age of 45). Background...I have panhypopituitarism caused by a sledding accident that makes my immune system weak. Anyway...4 weeks ago I broke out on my bracket & head following my occipital nerves on both sides of my head & 1 spot on my neck on the spine. 2 weeks later I broke out on my back, my head & neck broke out again, my face broke out on my chin & my mouth broke out. I was admitted to the hospital at that point with disseminated shingles and given IV antiviral, antibiotic & steroids and 5 days later got to go home. Fast forward 1 1/2 weeks to today.... I am breaking out again! My chin and back broke out in all new blisters last night and I feel so run down!!! I feel like if someone poked me with a pin I would just ooze puss and my breath smells like I have 'sore throat breath' (as my mom use to say)...but I don't actually have a sore throat!
I am super frustrated!! I have been using the antibiotic ointment on the shingles everyday since I got home from the hospital but I don't think it is making a difference! Has anyone had blisters keep appearing over & over like this just a week or two apart???
