I started with shingles, on antiviral 10 days. 3x's I've been sick with head cold, flu, diarrhea while trying to get better from shingles. Help!

It is a recurrence of a dormant or sleeping chicken pox virus from way back when that gets activated when your immune system declines - too much stress, too little rest, or busy fighting another infection. You need to allow your body to recover in order to get rid of all. ...Read more
