Shingles - home management remedies?
C5VetteLover posted:
There are so many "home remedies" out there to treat the shingles rash. I am wondering if there are any other treatments out there which seem to help the healing. I have a large outbreak running from the bottom of my sternum, under the left breast and around to the center of my back. Right now, the blisters have not broken; I am keeping the rash covered just because of the location - I can't wear a bra otherwise. I plan on going out of town in 4 days, so any fast help would be appreciated.

Hi and welcome C5VetteLover!

My 20-year-old daughter had shingles last spring, and she was miserable. I am so sorry to hear you're dealing with this.

Unsure how fast, but here is an overview of treatment options/ideas for shingles that I hope will help. I am betting that some things work better for one person than another.

I hope you find some relief soon.

Take care,
