At the first sign of blisters, take 1000-3000 mg. of l-lysine, spread through the day, then 500 a day for a week after the blisters are gone.  It has been two decades since my last outbreak, but it was clearly shingles--straight line of little water-filled blisters--and the solution worked.  By day two the blisters were dry, and no more sensation.  I believe this remedy does not help once the inflammation is established in a particular place--I got to this one on the third day, when the line was really clear.  Actually, I front-loaded with 3000 at night, then took a divided 3000 during the first day.  It can't hurt, and might help, especially for older friends, where it often hits harder.

Elizabeth, thanks for the tip!!! I know years ago I used to get fever blisters all the time until I did a heavy steady regimen of L-lysine. Took care of it!

cheap and good products from Natural Factors as well http://www.natvd.com and here you get your 10% when adding at the end of your order Isa10 and yuk it is
would add some B-vits as well & Vit. C in largest amounts, if it hurts I'd add also some phenylalanine (a natural painkiller, especially when nerves are involved )magnesium and of course zink .
Good luck to you

I don't know if I have shingles or not. I have tiny little itchy bumps all over. Have had it almost a week now. At first I thought it might be an allergic reaction to something but most of the time that is hives or large itchy areas.

I looked at my health book to see what the symptoms for shingles were and it sounded like an adult version of chicken pox. The itching and possible achy, chills, and fever. I feel a little achy today but no fever or chills.

Has anyone else had anything like this and do you need to go to a doctor to be diagnosed. Am I contagious?

My local newspaper had an article awhile back stating that a shingles vaccine was available and was recommended by the medical profession for seniors.I have not had the vaccine because I read that Dr.D believes vaccines are not a good thing for type B.

All over your entire body?  Arms, legs or just chest and trunk?

I've known people who have had shingles...most were much older than you are...Shingles
usually happens when people are either ill from some other issue or extremely stressed
and run down and then the virus that activated chicken pox in children flares up the same herpes virus known as shingles in adults...  I'm not saying you don't have shingles, but for the people who I've known who have had it, their experience was way more extreme than what you're describing. These little "bumps" or hives as you're describing would actually turn into blisters that burst...and cause extreme pain....and you'd feel really awful.

On the slim chance that you do have shingles, you might want to see a doctor and get
a diagnosis because early on, it can be treated with anti-viral medication which would
make the process less painful. People with shingles have described these little bumps
as extremely painful...

Match your rash to these photos.  Shingles virus is shown.

On the other hand, you could be detoxing...or have some kind of other mild virus.

I've had what looks like a bumpy rash on my upper chest many times...itchy little bumps..
I always correlated it with detoxing because I wasn't sick.

having no fever might not be contagious......get yourself checked to be on the safe side.

you might want to try Dr D s suggestion to Ribbit s skin problem
Quoted Text
Deflect helps, but here are some other suggestions

INTRINSA (apparently the butyric acid enhances natural bacterial breakdown enzymes)
ARA (prebiotic, so you get more bacteria)
POLYFLORA (the bacteria themselves)

Perhaps going high up on these temporarily (and keeping some around for the odd mishap) can speed the removal. Also, with time as the gut normalizes, these sensitivities should abate or attenuate.

Saw the doc this morning. Say it is probably a viral infection that will just have to run its course. Said if it did not go away in a week or so I could go see a dermatologist. See if I am allergic to anything.

Chiming in late here.  I had shingles about two years ago, and it is very painful.  Mine was on my face: started on the right side of my nose where the pad on my glasses sits, going up through my eyebrow to my forehead.  I had hair long enough to part, but the hair touching my forehead was so itchy and painful that my hair had to go!  I have a crater-like scar on my forehead and on the side of my nose.  I'm happy it didn't show up anywhere else.

I was under a lot of stress and had been for months at the time.

Buzy, I hope you get better soon!
