I'm 54 and am getting shingles and/or HSV infections constantly despite being on prophylactic anti-virals daily. The PHN pain and the pain of the infections is almost unbearable. Does anyone else have anything like this? I have already lost 80% of the hearing in both ears (Ramsay Hunt Syndrome) and am terrified it will get in my eye. I'm seriously considering a trip to Mayo's for help, as I have exhausted our resources in Springfield. I sometimes get the feeling that since this isn't life threatening, it doesn't get that much attention. I'm miserable, however, and am frustrated with pain and unsightly sores. Any suggestions?
Thanks so much~
