Patient :If I have had the shingles for four five days now and have been on acyclovir for all of those days and the shingles is on my right side on my back. Would it be ok to get a tattoo on my left wrist?
Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.
Tattooing site should be free from infection. Still I will advise you to avoid it till it is completely cured.
Take the full course of acyclovir and wait for complete remission.
I hope this helps.
