Shingles

Last year a close friend got a case of shingles that broke out in her ear & eye. It was a severe case that got me to thinking about getting a shingles vaccine, which I got.

Guess what, 6 months later now I have shingles. It was first expressed as a dermal hot spot in my lower back. It felt like a scrape, reminded me of an old soccer injury where a set a cleats waffled my skin. But there is no bruise, no surface break & I hadn't walked into any doorway. The hot spot slowly wrapped around my flank approaching my belly button. My doctor said I'm not contagious, it will soon pass although he was surprised there are no skin lesions.

So I'll suck it up, & get on with life but looking forward to a Santa Barbara & San Diego vacation soon & bummed I have to travel with what feels like a kick to the kidney. Anyone out there with medication or home-grown remedy advise? TIA
