Post shingles skin treatment

Trying to contemplate life "Post shingles" to keep my sanity but worried about possible damage on the skin once the blisters (and pain) have gone. Would anyone recommand good, if possible natural, treatment to avoid further complications afterwards?

Re: Post shingles skin treatment

I get shingles on my forehead more or less every Summer, but I've never had any scarring or skin discolouration afterwards.

Re: Post shingles skin treatment

I would be very cautious about using anything on the skin, and give it plenty of time to completely heal..

I had chickenpox, head to toe, about 2 years ago, and I was scrupulously careful to not rub or scratch the spots, and to keep everything covered with clean cotton clothing, and the skin healed fine...not one scar...

Ask to go to a skin doctor, there are some good creams on prescription that help with the itching.
