Ophathalmic shingles

Had 2 weeks ago how long will tingling on face and nose last.
Tingling worse when I get hot or upset is this normal.
Can I have another bout soon?

Are you taking anti-viral medication for the Shingles? If you are using an anti-viral drug, the tingling can last for up to one month and recurrence of the Shingles can be delayed for a period of time (at least 12 months), depending on the patient.

Had shingles that affected my face, left ear, jaw and tongue. Some of the pain/tingling lasted till last April 18 months after on-set. Still have tongue pain over two years after the on-set.
Hope you are out of pain sooner than that. It''s not fun.
