So I have come down with shingles, what to expect
June 1, 2014 1:50 PM Subscribe
I have been diagnosed with shingles. I currently have patches of raised rash running from spine to sternum passing through my armpit. I have been on Valtrex for 2 days and the rash is still expanding a bit. The rash is a bit itchy and annoying and occasionally hurts but otherwise I have not had major pain to this point.
So what I want to know is what to expect. I work in a field that has mostly desk work punctuated by some physical labor. Should I expect to have problems with work? Or am I do for an easy case as I have not had much nerve pain?
