shingles is caused by varacella zoster virus which causes shingles

I am sorry your shingles is breaking out

you should see your doctor and get on a course of antiviral pills and creams like acyclovir which can help shorten the course of the shingles

neurontin can help decrease nerve pain as well from shingles.
