Anyone that has the shingles can get relief from the burning pain by plastering aloe plant juice on the blisters. I have the shingles on my head and face, this is how I got relief last night. They are much better today.

I just got the first Shingrix shot. That night there was swelling at the vaccine site, soreness, and redness. I also got a rash and a fever, which is worse at night (I don’t know why). This is my 3rd day so I hoping tonight will be better.

I have had numerous bouts of shingles/herpes. This is brought on by stress most of the time. I never had before the age of 83 (that I know of) but I also have lupus/SLE (systemic lupus erythematosus) that has only affected my skin. This was diagnosed 16 years ago when I moved to Arizona. I have a breakout right now of herpes. I wonder if herpes can affect the brain. I am extremely light headed and have headaches. I am losing my balance completely. I am thinking if this might be due to shingles or herpes.
