Re: shingles

i had this problem too aftre my shingels... i got a tip for the itching from a pharmisist and it really helped me... get zinc tablets and crush them with a spoon and add a tiny drop of water to make a paste... it is a little sticky but it really cools the area and stops the itching.. hope it works for your husband too..
