    Are there home remedies to stop the itching related to Shingles?
    Mbergheim posted:
    I have a question. I have Cellulitis and an acute Shingles. I have a red rash on the left side of my face. I was wondering, are there any home remedies that help the calm the itching and lessen the rash? I am on 2 medications, one of which seems to work especially for the Cellulitis. I originally had swollen glands but they seem to be going down which is a good sign.
    I would appreciate some feedback as this itching is frustrating.
