I had shingles last July and had to use Lidocaine patches until January. I still suffer from severe itch over scar tissue, but am so much better than I was.
I will be 70 in September and am wondering whether I should get the free NHS Zostavax vaccine.
Can I get shingles again from the vaccine? Does having had shingles act like a vaccine?
I know many people on this site have had shingles numerous times and that idea terrifies me. It is an awful illness and I hope I do not suffer with it again.
