I got diagnosed with shingles today. I have had pain under my armpit for a couple of days. At first it felt like a bruise, then a bit more painful. Today two areas of quarter size rash under armpit and one on chest. The MD diagnosed me with shingles and started me on Valtrex and Neurontin. There is moderate pain under my arm but tolerable. my question is- I have a nonrefundable trip on Thursday to the opposite coast. With the pain as it is now I could absolutely go. My worry is that the pain gets much worse. The rash started about 24 hours ago. Will the pain likely increase from this point?
