Re: Shingles of the eye
I'm so sorry to hear about his condition. The doctor will probably recommend some anti-viral medications, but there are some things you can do as well. The amino acid lysine has been shown to block the virus from replicating. You may want to look into supplementing with that. On the other hand, you may want to look at avoiding foods high in arginine since that can help the virus replicate.
Perhaps some compresses could help with discomfort made from chamomile tea bags, steeped then cooled and applied directly on the sites.
Hopefully it will only be a couple of days.
Best wishes to you and your husband.
