Did you have chickenpox as a child?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 4 months ago

That's definitely shingles and you can only get it if you've had chickenpox in the past

It will resolve in a week to ten days and for now you can use over the counter topical capsaicin cream and oral benadryl for the symptoms, but it would be best to see your doctor for a prescription for oral acyclovir to speed up the healing

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
