Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i can understand your pain> Shingles indeed is painful and needs supportive care with strong neuropathic pain killers and use of acyclovir if started with in 48 hours of eruption . Most of the time its self resolving with minimal sequelae so no worries.

Take care
