Have Shingles Feb. Been getting sores in my head, face, mouth, pubic area, am on Valtrex (valacyclovir) rashes are itchy causing pain how do I get rid of shingles?

Change antiviral? You cannot get rid of the virus that causes chicken pox and also shingles - varicella zoster. Would be odd, but not impossible, to have shingles on face and pubic area. May be another virus. Liquid from oozing lesions can be tested to see what virus it is.
