In brief: When you hear hofbts

When you hear hoof beats you tend to think horses not zebras.
The fact is, the variable pain, pattern & symptoms are so classic for shingles, few physicians outside of a dermatology office or research center would bother to test. Identification of the microscopic pattern of a scraping is possible.
