After I was diagnosed with shingles and did some research, I learned that lots of people who are immunosuppressed get shingles. Then I found out that there is a vaccine for it. Whether or not it's advisable to get the vaccine if you have AI diseases, I don't know, but I would sure ask my rheumy if I had never had a case of shingles. Believe me, it's something that you do not want to have.

Hi Patty, thanks for the info. I occasionally get these really nasty blisters under my nose on the nerve endings. I was told it is related to shingles. It would be wonderful if there was somthing to help with that.
