    • There may not be a visible rash for the first week or so but then small blisters may appear. The affected area will eventually crust over and heal. The whole process takes about 3 to 4 weeks.
    • Symptoms that may occur include headache, sensitivity to light, flu like symptoms without a fever, itching, tingling, pain where a rash appears and later blisters or scabs may form.
    • Do not scratch the skin, it may increase risk of bacterial infection.
    • Place a cool, damp rag on the blisters to keep them from drying out.
    • A pain medication such as aspirin or ibuprofen is often used to relieve pain.
    • Doctors may prescribe antiviral medicines such as acyclovic or famciclovir.
    • Bacterial infection can occur if the skin is not kept clean or blisters are scratched open.
    • Eye damage or loss of eye sight can occur if the shingles spreads near the eyes such as on the nose or forehead.
    • Other complications include hearing loss, scarring, muscle weakness, and postherpetic neuralgia.
