it is a viral infection caused by herpes zoster.low immunity is the cause the virus to improve immunity.milk will not cause any problem.Antiviral drug treatment can reduce the severity and duration of herpes zoster if a seven- to ten-day course of these drugs is started within 72 hours of the appearance of the characteristic rash. analgesics can be taken .please see wheather its affecting eye region.better to consult a dermatologist.
