Shingles CAN occur on BOTH sides of the body -- bilateral Shingles

I have shingles on the top (crown) of my head. Seven doctors said it cannot be shingles since it is on both sides of the crown. A physician friend told me to insist that they do a biopsy. Results confirmed that it is active Herpes Zoster -- Shingles on both sides of my body.
