reoccuring shingles

My 25yr old daughter has had reoccuring shingles on her eye, nose & mouth for the past 12 years. She has outbreaks about every 6 to 8 weeks. She takes Valtrex once daily. Is there anything else she can do to stop these frequent outbreaks? What type of doctor treats patients with shingles?
Thanks, m.n.

Re: reoccuring shingles

are you sure it is shingles and not hsv1? I've seen some pretty nasty hsv 1 obs on faces. She can take valtrex to suppress the virus
