A member asked:

Could shingles cause swelling on one side of face and temporary loss of vision without a rash?

Rare: Shingles without a rash is rare. Could the facial swelling be an allergic reaction or be due to a tooth abscess? Have your md check you.

Yes: This is caused a "prodromal effect" where the symptoms occur before the rash. Please go see your eye doctor to be sure.
