Valtrex,prednisone,Lydocane patches, take an edible vitaminC 4 times a day, one Lysene amino acid a day,small amount of zinc every day vitamin B-12. I was cured in a week. Watch your diet and avoid an acid stomach.I used ibuprofin to ease pain it worked.Some say crushed aspirin mixed with nail polish remover as a topical pain reliever,I didn't try it.

My last shingles outbreak was in 2004. My former step-mother, a nurse/midwife, recommended L-Lysine. I took that, and the shingles cleared up fast. After that, if I felt that tingle, I'd take the lysine, and it would block the outbreak. When I went to buy the L-Lysine, the clerk asked, "so you have shingles?" without me even mentioning it. He told me it's the best way to treat and prevent shingles.

I broke out with shingles on the inner side of my leg from my foot up to my crotch. My doctor gave me meds for pain, and said I would have them for 3-4 weeks. I didn't like this so I stopped at a health store and the lady working there gave me Amino Acid pills, Acidophilus w/goats milk, and Wheat grass pills. I took these 4 times a day and my shingles were gone in less than a week. These clean the inside of your skin and this remedy has worked a 2nd time. I highly recommend these to all.
