    Hi Christina,
    I cam empathise with you, shingles is extraordinaily painful. I used an icepack and calamine lotion on mine. I remember I got up about five t imes in the night to do this. It did quieten it down for a while so I could get a bit of sleep.

    I hope other members come along with some more ideas for you.

    I hope it soon settles down and you become more comfortable again.
    Let us know how you get on.
    Goog luck and all best wishes for a speedy recovery.
