I just got over it. I took 1000 mg twice daily of lysine and 1000 mg 6-10 times daily of vitamin c. Like always I forgot or was too busy to keep it up a lot of the time. The days I took the pills I improved, slightly, the days I didnt, I stayed the same. Anecdotal, sure, but I repeated that experiment 20 times.

A little young to be getting shingles aren't you?

All the cool kids are doing it. Shingles has become more and more common and amongst younger and younger people since the chicken pox vaccine came out.

I had chicken pox.


The theory is that being around children with chicken pox wakes up your immune system so it suppresses a potential outbreak of shingles before it can begin.



I've pretty much run out of children.


You can rent one at the border.
