| | can shingles cause a swollen gland?
I was diagnosed with shingles, I have a rash on the right cheak of my buttox. Now, I also have a pain in the right side of my 'groin'- between like the pelvis and hip. I'm hoping that the shingles can cause this and that it isn't genital herpes (even though they stem from the same viral family). Does anyone have any insight into this?
I'm on Famvir for my shingles, and I'm thinking that waiting to see if it doesn't help clear it up could be a good indication. If it is herpes than this is my first flare up and Famvir likely won't help (or so I've read).
