Ophthalmologist 's  Response
these are typical of herpes zoster,if i would have to treat i would have started you on tab.acyclovir 800mg 5 times a day,and acyclovir eye ointment to be applied over the lesions and if eyes are involved in form of herpetic keratitis the to be applied in eyes as well,but you have to consult any ophthalmologist so that severity can be judged as well as eye involvement can be judged.
