Brief Answer:
Herpez Zoster ophthalmicus

Detailed Answer:
My dear,
Thanks for getting back to me.

This is treatable and the treatment offered is correct. Watch for the vesicles to appear. This has a 4 to 7 days latent period, so anything previous to that is not related .Continue with the treatment and she will be fine.
