Hiatus

What I thought was a bug-bite on my eyelid has been diagnosed as shingles.

Ive had them. Take Lysine. Its an amino acid your body needs right now. I asked my Dr. about it when I had mine and he said go for it if you think it will help. And yes you can take it with anything else you are taking. Its a natural thing in your body already. What this does tho is speed the healing and reduce the pain. Many have residual pain after it heals, I didnt because I used this. I took it 3 times a day till I was healed. Good Luck and sorry to hear you have it in such a bad place.

GACK!!!! I agree on the lysine. Really helps. Also perhaps acylcovir?

Hope it gets better soon!

I feel your pain. I am two weeks into having them on my left side. Used acylcovir and am dried and scabbed over. Still a little uncomfortable but may be because of the scabbing. Get all the rest you feel you need-it will help. Feel better soon.

Oh no! Very painful. So, so sorry. I hope they go away soon. Get lots of rest, if possible.

My Sweetie has been there. He also had shingles in his nose at the same time. He wishes you a speedy recovery.
