Hello, I had shingles around my right eye, forehead,eyebrow,eye and inside my head. I went on antivirals immediately and has 2 rounds of meds along with visits to the Opthomologist every other day, when my shingles went away it went straight to postneuraligia nerve pain. This all started Oct 28th and I still have nerve pain, shooting pain in my eye along with intense itching. Any suggestions? I’m in LYRICA 2x daily, I have a prescription gel it was a compound with lidocaine in it. I have shingles dermacare cream, shingles rescue and none of this works. I have scratched my face until it bled and pulled my hair out. I’m just made the 6 month mark with no relief.

@lynellb2 Hi I'm sorry for anyone that has shingles so far I have excapsed this but have you tried to use oatmeal soap it is very smoothing for the itch , I use to have to give patients an oatmeal bath that had this itching all the time. Now they have the soap and Aveeno has a lotion I think its Aveeno . Good luck
