    Shingles on hand and trauma to hand. Orthopedist?

    I was diag with shingles on my "good" hand one month ago. I went to dr thinking I had injured palm of hand because there is a sore there. Dr looked at my hand said it was shingles and that dr noticed my hand swollen and black and blue and said Looks like I injured it. I was given anti viral rx for shingles. My hand and fingers numb also still painful as the little shingles cuts hurt. Went back to dr re my hand she said it was the shingles and discounted the hand bruise. There is a bruise still there on palm near wrist with some swelling. My dr said it was shingles. I cannot grip anything with my right hand as numb. Should I see a orthopedic if it is a bad hand injury or continue waiting until shingles gone? I do not know if numbness from shingles or hand trauma.

    Hi Jutebox! I'm so sorry I missed your post! Welcome to the boards.

    I hope you went to see an orthopedic specialist. Can you tell us how you are doing?
