So sorry.  I made sure my hubby and I got the first vaccine that came out, and more recently, the Shingrix Vaccine.  My kids are getting to the age that I need to encourage they get the shot, too, as they both had chicken pox in 1971.

Hope the pain and rash aren't too bad.

My brother and a friend of my daughters had them.  Both of them said they are extremely painful.  Hope you have a mild outbreak.  

Take care,

Just what you didn't need. Hope it's a mild case and you recover quickly. All the best to you!

Dealing with the shingles was pretty sucky, but it'll be over before you know it. Hope you feel better soon!

OK, well... it's weird but it's not science.

My sister's mother in law told me that a friend of hers, surprisingly, found relief from shingles by applying the milky sap of a Frangipani tree. She was quite genuine about it. i decided that I would try it if I ever got shingles And suggest it if I met someone with shingles.

That was 15 years ago and you're the first I've met, Crash. If you have a Frangipani tree handy I would love to know if it actually helps.
