Fever Blister Vs Shingles
I'm pregnant, and this morning i awoke with "fever blisters" on my chin. Is this shingles, and will this hurt my baby? I had a case of very mild shingles at age nine, and this feels the same. Burning, and needle like pain.
Shingles (Herpes Zoster) (Definition)

Herpes zoster, MRSA: Sounds like your shingles rash has become infected with MRSA. If you're on an antibiotic for MRSA and it's starting to improve or not getting worse, just hang in there; it can take several days to clear up. Are you also on anti-shingles treatment, e.g. valacyclovir? If high fever or getting worse, call your doctor's office; another doctor will be covering for her. Good luck! ...Read more
Two days ago I was vaccinated for flu, shingles, and tetanus. Tonight & last night I experienced mild fever & body aches, but only in the evening.
Immune system: Three vaccines at one time are a significant stimulus to the immune system. That's exactly what you want - to train the immune system to fend off any attack from these germs. A little bit of fever and body ache could be expected. If symptoms are not improving now, or God forbid worsening, you'll need to let the doc who gave the shots know that. You could take some Tylenol in the meantime. ...Read more

Should be no risk: With shingles, the only contagious material is the debris from the sores. Not being around the kid or in saliva or cough like wild cpx can be. Once the sores have dried & are healing, they are not a risk & covering can prevent any residual. Incubation is 10-21 days, so early exposure would have shown disease by now. The vaccine is due when he is 1yo & is helpful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can reactivation of shingles cause pins nedls crawling bugs on skin severe at night with chills, fever, fatigue, nausea muscle aches /gulain barre syndme?
Unlikely: Some people think you can only get shingles once and some others think you can get it more than once. It is unusual to get shingles in people under 40 years old. Mild systemic symptoms are more associated with shingles, such as fatigue, low fever, more of a mild viral syndrome. Chills, nausea, muscle aches would be unusual. To my knowledge gulain barre has not been associated with shingles. ...Read more
