So with the shingles in left eye, I haven't been able to touch my face from my left cheekbone up over my forehead and back onto my scalp. That entire quarter of my head was completely off limits...accidental touches (and sometimes nothing) would set off a firestorm of debilitating excruciating pain. All the nerves simply burned.
Well, that area is better. There is still lots of nerve activity, but I can at least touch my eyebrow and forehead.
So the gross part...I finally decided to wash my entire head and face after about a month of avoiding that left area and spot cleaning. You would not believe the amount of dead skin!!! It literally balls up on my fingers as I wash. YUK!!! But I am very thankful to have a clean face now...and moisturizer too! Bonus!
