Question about Shingles
I went to the doctor on Thursday because I found some bumps on my back. They were clear raised bumps and the skins surrounding it red. I kind of hurt. Doctor said she wasn't positive (because she usually sees shingles AFTER they blistered) but wanted to treat me for shingles because all other items pointed to shinges (starting waist high beginnig at spine, only on right side of body, etc).
She prescribed Valtrex. So now, 5 days later the bumps are pretty much the same. From what I have red, they are supposed to blister and get worse with 24-48 of outbreak. My question, do you think the medication is what is keeping the bumps under control or are they maybe something else?
Anyone had the experience of catching shingles very soon after onset? I have also been feeling achy and tired.
