Shingles or Herpes Zoster

I had developed a rash and a burning symtom in my back and chest. Look like shingles. I live in Baton Rouge, LA. I'm 61 years old What I can do ?

Go see a doctor and get it diagnosed.

Wink Re: Shingles or Herpes Zoster

Thank you Catharine. I did it and I am under treatment now. I hope I will be back to normal condition in a couple weeks. I'm still working every day but is not fun.

get to a Doctor right away. You have to get the meds in your system right away, or they may not work. i took valtrex and after 8 pills my shingles started clearing up!

Thank you Kennie. I took Acyclovir 800 MG already and I'm much better now than two weeks ago.
