Brief Answer:
HGH=Human grpwth hormone?

Detailed Answer:

I will like to make sure we are using HGH to stand for the same medical product- Human Growth Hormone.

If yes, there is no evidence to support that it has any effect on shingles.
If it stands for something else. kindly spell it clearly and I will be glad to review the evidence and offer more insights to you.

Hope to hear from you before concluding. Until then, I wish you well.
