I was diagnosed with shingles on Monday after spending 2 days with this miserable rash on my face that was so painful. I ended up in the emergency room was treated and now my eye is swollen shut. (Ugly picture I know) I am on an anti-viral medication but the swelling is not going away. I was also prescribed Vicoden for the pain Anyone have any tips that can speed along recovery? I have missed 4 days of work and run up medical bills from two emergency room visits and I am getting quite depressed.
