My husband put Kaopectate on a cotton ball and dabbed on lesions to stop itching and dry it up.

@charlena Was your husband ever prescribed a med for the lesions/shingles (an anti-viral)? That takes care of the lesions from the inside out. After three days of the med, my lesions were almost cleared up. I just had 3 lesions, and I don't know that amount or the severity of your husband's lesions.

If he hasn't been prescribed an anti-viral med you might ask his doctor if it would help.

How did your husband find out that Kaopectate would work? I would not have thought to try it.
