Re: Herpes or shingles?? Please read!

Hi ads... Sounds likwe shingles . Similar outbreak occured on my foot and my leg - patch of red with blisters and bumps . Needs to be treated with antivrals within 72 hrs . Even if its longer the treatment for me reduced the effects. I have had shingles before but around the waist area-- spine ,Never thought it could start on foot! There you go i now worry every time I get a red itchy spot . Hope all works out for you. Cheers ,M
