Hi,Customer I think that the Diagnosis is correct .
Your doctor could prescribe You oral antiviral medication like Acyclovir (Zovirax), You will take this medication by mouth within the first 3 days of showing any symptoms.
This a virus that will always remain in your body , producing symptoms from time to time .
If the symptoms are very frequent , You could have an Immune Deficiency ( the immune system defends the body against infections ) .
The immune system defends the body against infections ,it is composed by several cells ( lymphocytes,neutrophils,basophils ,macrophages ) and proteins ( antibodies ) . When one of these elements is deficient ,the patient will have a decreased ability to combat the Varicella-Zoster virus, the virus will replicate more easily , in consequence the patient will have frequent Shingles episodes .
You could have an Immune Deficiency , consult an Immunologist Specialist to determine if You are suffering an Immune Deficiency .
Your doctor will treat you if you have one of these conditions to reduce the frequency of Shingle Episodes .
If You do not have an Immune Deficiency , the doctor will prescribe Oral Antiviral Medication to take when You are experiencing Shingles Symptoms .
If you like the answer, please click accept . A bonus will always be sincerely appreciated .
