Shingles, Day 5

Today, I really felt better, slept better, not a whole lot of burning on my skin, all of which is good. However, I have a spot on my jaw that hurts a whole lot, so I bundled up heavily and went to the doctor. 

Shingles, Day 5

The doctor felt like there was a good possibility that I was getting a bacterial infection in a salivary gland, so she prescribed some antibiotics. I am trying to go through the day with no prescription pain meds. We'll see how that goes.
