Plantoid, does it *feel* like your previous two Shingles episodes? Or were they different enough from each other enough to make you doubt this time? What's your gut telling you it is?

plantoid wrote:@ AtlantaMarie , good to see you're getting over it ….don't forget to update your antivirus programme  Norton is a good one apparently .  Laughing

I realise you're not a doctor and am not asking for medical advice just some information  about your shingles .


 Question  did it start out like a few closely grouped insect bites , each a slightly raised red spot about 1/16 of an inch in diameter with an orange fluid in the middle of the bite on the second day ?

 I'm asking for with this Corona virus thing  ..... 

I've had the above on the back of both arms & it's spread to the area  by my rh trouser pocket . The doc got me to email him photos of it .  Just said, " You've got an infection "   & prescribed antibiotics & a cortisone cream . That was 9 days ago the meds are finished , the rash is still here & driving me crazy . 

I will be contacting him again tomorrow for I think it may be shingles , as I've had chicken pox four times as a kid/teen ager  & shingles twice in my early sixties . I had the shingles vaccination about 8 yrs ago , don't know how effective they are & for how long they last .

Lol, Plantoid! In my case, it started in my ear. I thought it was an ear infection. Then I noticed some tingling in my lower left lip. Wondering if I could have picked up the herpes virus somewhere & was getting a fever blister or something.... Then I broke out in some small areas of blisters on my temple & chin. Then the blister groups spread to my cheek bone.

Red & inflamed, yes, but nothing orange. And it didn't look like an insect bite.

I will also say that a friend had gotten the shingles shot & STILL got another case of it. He said it was much lighter in intensity than his first case, but still...

I was going to suggest chiggers, but those get much larger than 1/16". I haven't heard of anything like that with Corona, but are they telling us everything? (It's horrible getting ill with a pandemic going on!)

I'm sorry I can't be of more help!!

Morning. Thought I'd give an encouraging update. I've seen marked improvement over the last 3 days. I was actually able to wear my glasses for the 1st time in 7 weeks. Paid for it in itching/tingling later, but definite progress!

Am working on weaning myself off of the gabapentin. I've been able to keep it to 1 pill every 3-6 hours for the most part. Mostly I can just do the 1 every 6 hours.

Still can't wear cpap, so still on the recliner. But was able to sleep through night before last without waking up. :-)
