Steroid cream: Just as on the arms or legs, the treatment is symptom driven. Over the counter steroid cream 2-3 times a day for 3-5 days should help. Try not to get it in the eye itself as it can irritate and blur the vision.

1% steroid cream: Be sure of the diagnosis. I have seen multiple cases of herpes zoster (shingles) fool the patient. Steroid cream use is best monitored by your eyecare doc. Also, keep area clean.
