Brief Answer:
Herpes zoster

Detailed Answer:
Hi.

As explained in your previous query. I would keep a diagosis of Herpes Zoster. This is not ringworm.

I suggest Oral antiviral i.e Vacivir 1 gm three times daily for a week and topically you may apply T-Bact cream. You may also take Flexon for pain relief.

There are no dietary advices for Herpes Zoster. The skin lesions should resolve in about a week however pain may last for a few weeks.
