I desperately need some insight. I have been dealing with shingles for the past 4 months. I had a difficult pregnancy with my third baby (undiagnosed diabetes). My baby ended up in the NICU for a week. Needless to say it was a crazy and stressful time and 6 months later I am nursing and getting no rest. I had my first shingles outbreak at the end of August. It was relatively mild, went on Valtrex and it resolved in a couple weeks. Three weeks later I woke up with itchy spots on my panty line of right leg. The spots were different however as there were 4-5, but after a half hour they went away. Then the bumps appeared on my breast and once again disappeared after a half hour again. I went to my dr and started on Valtrex again. Two days After that course was finished I experienced tingling all over and then again had a few red itchy bumps appear then went away after a half hour. I had a slew of bloodwork done (none for autoimmune issues though) and things looked fine. I have been on suppressive therapy since. Recently I began experiencing tingling all over my body and lots of exhaustion-2 weeks later I started getting one or 2 bumps in random spot on different parts of my body. Once again, these bumps seem to be fluid filled but they disappear within a half hour. My dr said this is an ‘id’ reaction. But the virus is still active in me. Any thoughts on why the bumps come and go quickly and aren’t the typical blisters??
