Which medicines were prescribed?
How are the sores?
Thank you for all the information,I am sorry for his symptoms.It is good that he is on antivirals.This will help to reduce the severity of disease.Shingles is quite painful as you are aware.Gabapentin will help with pain.Ibuprofen or acetaminophen can be taken too.If the blisters are oozing he can use cool compress.A cloth or flannel cooled with water can be used.It can be used several times a day but not more than 20 minutes at a time.This will clean the blisters.If there is no oozing, it is not necessary to use cool compress.I hope this information helps.If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.Wish him early recovery.Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.Regards.
