That's a big area. I hope she got started on antivirals early to reduce residual pain.
No,she came late, this appeared 2 weeks so according to her
So painful! I got shingles in the same area almost a year Post BMT (05/1995) for AML.
Looks quite a bit like Shingles
That's what the poster says it is
Expansive affected area. Hope not a lingering or long recovery.
I can't help but cringe seeing this. I should see about getting the shingles vaccine...
Don't bother. I got the vaccine and two years later got the biggest case of shingles! Very painful. Still painful.
Yikes! Were you immunocompromised when you got it? That really sucks. My mom had shingles when I was a kid, and it was really awful.
Vaccination is still a good idea - it might only be about 50% effective and last 5 years but that's 50% less cases: good for patients and good for stretched resources (time and money).
You can see underwear marks--I don't know how this person tolerated the discomfort. Yikes! What are you doing for pain control?
#Lidocaine-Patch , oral treatment with: #Diclofenac-tramadol but according to her, she felt "high" with #Numbness but without pain so yesterday we gave her #Carbamazepine in other to see
Very interesting! Thanks.
Looks so painful 😖
