Don'e scratch!!! whatever you do. I am so sorry for this additional pain. Prayers for a quick recovery and no reoccurance!!
Take care of yourself, shingles can become serious and make you very ill, so do everything the doc tells you to do. The last time I had the shingles the doc put me on a anti-virus drug. It seemed to help speed healing, but not sure if it did!! Did you get any medication?
Love and hugs,
Gail- Sorry I don't know much about shingles, but just wanted to send my get-well wishes....hang in there.
