Shingles Pain
asdena posted:
My husband has had the shingles. They have been on his head on the right side of the forehead and temple area. The skin is healing but he is have the most terrible pain in the temple area that shoots down into his eye. The Doctor put him on Fentanyl patch The pain episodes are about 1 to 2 hours apart and last for 2-3 minutes. Is there anything else he could take that would give him some relief?
Thank You
