Have you had the Shingles Rash?



Recommended Posts

I had nose surgery to repair a deviated septum this past Wednesday. I still have splints inside by nose so I am not allowed to blow it and I feel like I have the flu. Since Wednesday I have lost 5 lbs and now have broken out with the Shingles Rash. They say Shingles is brought on by a weaken immune system so I am thinking the Nose surgery might have been just a little too much for me right now. I think I would have been smart to have taken the Shingles Vaccine when it was offered to me a few months back. I am still eating and drinking what I should but am losing weight a lot faster than I have in months.

I had both shingle vaccines a few years ago and I have not experienced a shingles rash. So the vaccine appears to work for me. I am 70.

Did you feel any shingles pain? I have had shingles, not pleasant at all, and early this year I had the vaccine to help avoid any future bouts.

I came home from hospital with a really nasty cold. Less than a week later I had shingles on the right side of my face and inside my right nostril. Ouch is all I can say.

well the shingles got a lost worse since taken that first picture. I went to the doctor and they put me on an antiviral that appears to have stopped it growing and maybe has even started drying it up. There pictures were taken at the doctors office.

OMG I am glad I had my Shingles shots, at 72 I would not want that on my "plate", FYI,everybody, at 7, end of Grade 2, I had chicken pox so badly they were in my future " lady parts", old country doctor told MaMa " I'm not sure she will have children", scared the bejeebers out of her. Dumb old doctor, I had 3, each one bigger than the one before, Tomkitten was over 9 and half pounds. 12 pounds at a month, and never looked back. When he gets too: mouthy", I remind him he is carrying a BMI of 38 with a comorbid, Dr Needleman may pay me a $100 fee to drag his chubby self in, after all!😝&👨with🐺🐺
