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.
