Shingles when are they most contagious/less contagiious

When are the shingles most contagious and least contagious...in the beginning i would think it would be most when you have the blistering...how bout when it becomes scabbing a bit...does this mean it is at it's 'weakest' stage?

I use the acyclovir and take valtrex, and once I begin seeing the scabbing I stop the acyclovir and put neosporin to try and get the healing process to expedite...is that the best way, or should i leave it dry?

This on top of dealing with the tell not tell is killing me I've been in a relationship for 3 months and its starting to get serious. I don't want to risk the loss because of this, so for now I just try to stay away during outbreaks...act sick..etc...it sucks! Anyways, any help would be great...did i say this sucks!
