Herpes Zoster is a viral disease and takes time according to severity.
Usually it takes 2-3 weeks to heal completely.
Take anti-inflammatory medicine and antibiotic as there is a chance of having super added bacterial infection.
There is no need of antiviral,ocuvir if course is completed.
You can apply triple cream locally if needed.
Ok andtake care.
