Hi T

Shingles is VERY painfull, and treating it is ogten easier said than done. For temporary relief try Topla crm or Amethocaine cream - These are local anaesthetic cream that may help to some extent. Also try taking some ibuprofen tablets.

Your doctor can prescribe a tablet (i.e. Lyrica) that may be more effective in treating neuropathic pain.

Try putting beeswax on it, it is amazing. Really soothing. I get it too. Also, get vitamin B injection. Wear loose clothes around it, it is very annoying. The beeswax you buy at most chemists
