Some also find Aveeno bath helps as well.
Given you have Wegener's and I suspect are on immunosupressive therapy, I would also want to make sure you are taking an antiviral medication- acyclovir ( Zovirax) or Valtrex for the shingles.

Always ask if you need clarification/more information.

OK good- I am glad you are on acyclovir.
