Re: Shingles behind one eye..need help plz

the steroids will definitely aggravate her diabetes. i am also diet controlled and when i have to take steroids i have very erratic readings for a few weeks after i'm finished with them. i had shingles twice on my face. near my lips and on one cheek. the pain is horrible. my dr. treated it with one of the anti-vital drugs prescribed for herpes. i had to take it for 10 days and then he did blood work again and all was fine. did take awhile for the pain and lesions to go away. had relapses on and off for years and took the meds everytime. ahven't had a case of it in years now. don't knwo if this will help or not. everyone's case is different.
