I have shingles blisters on my forehead. Can I take a shower and wash my hair? Is there danger that it will spread to my eye that way?

I have shingles blisters on my forehead. Can I take a shower and wash my hair? Is there danger that it will spread to my eye that way?

No danger: Shower. It is good for it. The cornea shares a nerve with the tip of the nose. If you have it on the forehead it is a different nerve. If you have eye symptoms or shingles on the tip of the nose, see an ophthalmologist. Shower and shampoo does NOT spread shingles. Pills for it, started on day 1 or 2, taken for a week, may shorten the course and reduce the symptoms. ...Read more

One: One fourth of all shingles (caused by the reactivation of the chicken pox virus varicella zoster) infections can affect the eye area. The mainstay of treatment is starting antiviral medications within 72 hours of the start of infection which it sounds like you have done - that's great! If the symptoms are worsening or if you feel like your vision is being affected, you should either give your doctor a call or go see an ophthalmologist (eye doctor) for an evaluation right away. There are different additional treatments that can help besides the valacyclovir if the actual eye becomes involved.

There is a 15% possibility of transferring chicken pox to your infant son. The ope lesions contain the virus, but once they crust over, you are no longer contagious. Shingles is much less communicable than chicken pox. Good hand washing is key! Other good news is that your breastmilk is also going to be somewhat protective for your son with anti-varicella antibodies, so keep breast feeding! Some doctors will also recommend the use of vzig (injectable antibodies against varicella virus) and immunization for older infants (9 mos or older). You may want to give your son's doctor a call and see what they recommend.

Valacyclovir is a category b drug for pregnancy (b = safe), and is ok to use while breastfeeding, too. (see link below) since your lesions are on your face/ near your eye, you should not stop this medication. ...Read more

Herpes: The forehead lesion could be early shingles (herpes zoster). See your physician as soon as possible as antiviral treatment may be needed and precautions necessary for potential eye involvement. Routine herpes simplex (cold sores) of the lip area is less serious potentially. See your physician even it if turns out to be a false alarm. ...Read more

Can I get blisters on my tongue from giving head?

Can I get blisters on my tongue from giving head?

Yes: Oral sex can lead to small bruises or sores within the mouth. Obviously, the more energetic the act, and the longer it goes on, the more likely you are to have mouth issues. Blisters on the tongue are not all that common, but not impossible. Small bruises, hemorrhages, and blood-blisters on the palate are the most common oral problems associated with fellatio. They're rarely serious problems. ...Read more

Herpes zoster?: If the blisters are all over the head and only in sun-exposed areas (e.g. not in the hair), then maybe related to sun exposure. But if localized to one side or the other, i.e. no blisters across the midline, then herpes zoster (shingles) is a good bet. He should see a doctor ASAP: helpful treatment is available but must be started early for maximum effect. ...Read more
