    I had them when I was like 10 years old.I don't remeber any pain.We thought it was a rug burn.My Mom took me to the doctors and she gave me some pills and this stuff to soak it with.It cleared up with in two weeks.I have a scar where it was but no lasting nerve damage.I've alway wondered if they would come back.You can get them anytime.So far then never came back.

    I feel for you.I wish I could remeber more but it was so long ago.

    I have shingles... on my roof.

    (oooh, I know that was uncalled for, but I just can't help myself sometimes. I apologize to anyone whom I may have offended by minimizing this potentially debilitating illness.)

    Mine popped out when in nursing school because of the stress. Everyone had good ideas. There's also a bath soak you can get at wlamart that is good. It's got oatmeal in it. Can't remember the name off hand. Maybe aveeno?

    There has been some medical success in treating herpatic symptoms with Zinc. My doctor said when I would get cold sores to take Zinc, as that seems to be inadequate in people with shingles, cold sores, etc. L-Lysine (amino acid) can also be used.

    Good luck and I hope that your symptoms soon subside!
