Patient : I get shingles about 3-4 times a year for the past 10 years. I have them now and I want to get the vac for them. I have been told I have to wait until I'm 50! I am only 34 now.....that's a LONG wait!! I have had them biopsied to make sure they are 100% shingles and it came back positive! What can I do? I have already come close to losing my eye once. The meds they prescribe no longer work, so I'm on my own with the old remedy of taking vitamin E caps and putting the oil on the site. PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!
