Welcome to Healthcare Magic
From your description it looks like you have Herpes Zoster
). Itching is not a common symptom but it can be itchy. It usually is painful associated with burning sensation. As it is also present over the nose there is a chance of lesions involving eye which needs immediate attention from an ophthalmologist. You need to take Acyclovir
or Valcyclovir tablets for 7 days. Prednisolone
is not given routinely for shingles, only for certain indications. I advice you to see a dermatologist
and Ophthalmologist at the earliest.
Hope this helped. Don't worry. It is treatable and you will be alright soon.
