THank you all for your information.
I never had shingles until I started Enbrel 8 weeks ago. I think my immune system is definitely lowered. My small cuts or bruises take very long time to heal now. To prevent as muany illnesses I can, I clean my hands constantly all day long and avoid sick people as much as I can.
I have chills, tingling/burning sensations all over, painful to touch, red/hard/blotches, itchiness, burning. Within 1day of taking Valtrex, I already see a big difference. Hopefull
I read shingle information on Mayo clinic website. It talks about there is a vaccination for shingles for elders. Have you heard about them?
