I am sorry you have bad shingles

have you tried acyclovir pills and acyclovir creams

these can help fight the virus and help shrink the shingles blisters

Gold Bond 4% lidocaine cream over the counter can help numb the skin and decrease pain.

you can use lukewarm soap and water to clean the area.
