Thanks for your answer .
I would be pleased to answer your question .
If it is Shingles
, You will need to take an anti viral course for a period of 10 days . You will need a prescription for the same from your Dermatologist
or Primary care
physician for Anti Viral Acyclovir
or Valacyclovir .
Please do not apply steroids or take steroids orally for a long time as it will not make much difference .
Thanks and take care
