I was diagnosed a week ago and feel like I have entered a world of torture! I have shingles both on the surface and under the skin and there are times that I feel like I have bugs crawling inside my body. I am on medication at this time which is to help the skin rash, but what do I do about the pain????? My doctor told me that it would take a week to a year to get rid of them and I could be suicidal before then. I have to see him Monday which is when I finish the medication he gave me and hopefully I will get something to at least dull the pain. Can anyone give me any advice?? Maybe some old home remedies?
