My husband recently had what seems to be shingles. It appeared on the lower part of his leg. I wondered if it was normal for swelling to occur? The leg that had the break out is currently one half its size larger.

Hi Anon_162046,

Please have your husband visit a doctor for help with Shingles. Dr Evans has some posts on the topic and you can find them by using the board search engine with shingles as the keyword. Then narrow the search by expert replies.

We also have a Shingles Health Center for more helpful information about this condition before your husband sees a doctor.

Take care!
