I have had shingles nine times, yes I had the shot for them. That was the fourth time I got them, a severe reaction to the shot. I take Acyclovir 400mg now four times a day and have been taking it in declining and increasing doses for over a year. This has been 4x daily for 6 months. Whenevere the dose is decreased, after six months 3x daily, etc. They reoccurr. I ve had them on my legs, thighs, arms, armpit, and butt cheek. I did have chicken pox and measles at the same time as a child. Why am I getting shingles so often and what can I do to prevent them?

Hi, I came down with severe shingles on April 20th on the upper right hand side of my body.. Most of the rash is starting to dry up. The Dr. prescribed the medication Apo-Valacyclovir on Monday the 21st. I have not had much pain, the odd jabbing shots up into my head. I have been taking Tylenol and Advil. Today the part of my body where the rash is has been burning so have applied cold presses. Tonight I have more pain on my right side, I am wondering if this is normal.

The red area is still the same and my husband says I have what looks like a blister on my scalp. Could this be shingles? There is no rash. I also have a headache.

I am curious what this is. I think it s a pimple (or a few of them), but it s in an odd spot on the side of my rib cage (near where my bra would be on the side). Ignore the scar - it s from a childhood heart surgery.
