Re: Shingles

It's so sad that everything has a price on it, you look at all these different website and your so despert to get rid of things you don't won't to deal with, and your afraid to try these different things, because there are so many crooks out here, people are always trying beat people out of their money it's so sad.............anyway about four day ago my forehead started burning, it felt like I was standing near a flame and it was so painful, then I noticed small like blisters, I began to get really upset, because Im dealing with enough already, Im on acyclovir, I take 2 pills aday by mouth, I know the medication does not cure the herpes virus, but it decrease pain and itching, I went to the Wallgreen and I ask the pharmist what did they have for rash, she recommended (hydrocortisone) and I was so amaze at how fast the rash begin to heal, compared to Saturday and today there is a great difference, the blisters are gone, I do have some very tiny bumps, but I can deal with that, I told my girlfriend I had a rash and she said I would have know if you hadn't told me, I guess I was a little concience about it, I don't know if it will work for you, but thank God it helped me, the tube is labled (top care, maximum strenght)

good luck, aaf
