Ouch! Where are they?? Hopefully no where that you’ll be able to see! Try to do some relaxing techniques! The shingles came out b/c of stress probably, and you don’t want to make them worse! Book a massage for yourself!!!

You’ll be fine. An outbreak lasts usually only a week or so, but try and relax and not stress out. You don’t want it to happen again right before the wedding!

Best thing EVER we found when I had shingles was to crush up aspirin and mix it with rubbing alcohol to make a paste that you can put on the shingles.  That was the only thing that stopped the pain.  Feel better!

I don’t have any great advice, I just wanted to say I am so sorry! My dad had shingles recently and he said it was extremely painful. I hope you’re feeling better soon!

@sopranokris:  Honestly, you’ll be fine. I had shingles the week of my wedding (rash appeared on the Sunday before) and I was fine.

Loose clothing and relax!!! My little sister had them and didnt wear a bra for 2 weeks! Ice packs and staying cool helps.

Oh my gosh, how old is everyone that has had shingles?  They don’t even recommend getting the vaccine until age 50.  I bet they would consider giving the shot to you if you keep getting shingles and are under 50.  Good luck and I hope it goes away soon!

Once you have the Chicken Pox you will likely have an outbreak of Shingles (very similiar virus)….my mother got them when she was 50 and it only lasted a week
