Re: herpes zoster (shingles)
I am not writing this to scare you, but if you truly have shingles around the eyebrow, you should see a doctor immediately; if the shingles attacks the eye you could go blind.

Although it is unusual to have it at your age, it is possible. A variety of blood tests will need to be done.
