“Usually you get the shingles rash on your chest and tummy, but it can appear anywhere on your body including on your face, eyes and genitals,” explains the health body.

It continues: “The rash appears as blotches on your skin, on one side of your body only. A rash on both the left and right of your body is unlikely to be shingles.”

Treatment

According to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), several antiviral medicines—acyclovir, valacyclovir, and famciclovir – are available to treat shingles and shorten the length and severity of the illness.

“These medicines are most effective if you start taking them as soon as possible after the rash appears,” notes the CDC.
