Hi, I had my second vaccine for shingles on Saturday

Hi, I had my second vaccine for shingles on Saturday Morning. No issue with the first one. Today I woke up and notices swelling on my left cheek. Soon after I was freezing and could not get warm. I took exceedrin and now I still feel bad and the swelling has become worse. I know the fever can be due to the vaccine but I am concerned with the swelling. What Dr. should I see if it is not better Monday?

Hi Doc I was diagnosed with shingles Saturday, the15 and given a 3 day, twice a day prescription of valacyclovir, 500mg.This means I will be through with treatment on the 17th. Will I be contagious after that. I have a family reunion on the 20th of July where there may be children and pregnant women present. This is my second bout with shingles. This time there were two small areas affected, one on my neck near my spine (3 little pimples) and one on my neck bone where it attaches to my spine (2 little pimples).

Hi... i am considering getting the Shingles vaccine, & i am allergic to sulfa, terramycin, & erythromycin... will any of these drug allergies present a problem for me? Also, i am a Polio survivor with Post Polio Syndrome & my immune system has occasionally reacted to some drugs, like just recently with a Prolia shot. The Dr. said it could not have been that, but i suddenly got lips full of herpes cold sores for the first time in my life, & got fungal skin infection all within 2 weeks of the shot. Thank you for your input. I will 62 in September & of course had the Chicken Pox... :) Should i get the Shingles Vaccine ?

Hi. I have a question concerning a condition I beginning to get frequently. I have had shingles and I called my doctor to see if he could prescribe the same medicine to me the last time. He never returned my call. I had to go to a minute clinic and they treated me with medicine. But now the bumps are dark and it looks like a scab. I still have a little stinging but it is coming from the scab because it is like peeling. I have been placing calamine lotion on it. Is it something else I can get for it? Can I get the vaccination shot for shingles. Is there age for the vaccination?
