My aunt is slowly recovering from shingles, and has PHN. Is there a clothing retailer anyone would recommend who sells loose-fitting clothes that don't hug the waist, which is where it is most painful for her? Also, any suggestions on what materials hurt less? Thanks so much.

Be as naked as she can be. A loose fitting caftan is fine at home, she does not need to wear underclothes if they hurt. I like cotton and rayon the most. Check the care labels, make sure they are machine washable. I have bought mine mostly through various catalogs, lots of them come this time of year. I wish I could suggest a specific one.

I am so sorry your aunt is going through this, and hope she recovers soon.

Take care, Annette
