It is shingles

Well it's shingles with a secondary bacterial infection. Nice huh? So they prescribed meds (6), 2 for the shingles itself (one pill and one creme), loritab for the pain, diflucan in case I get a yeast infection from the antibiotics and augmentin. Oh and an antidepressant. She said that with my pain being so high but not many blisters yet that my pain will linger - she called it post trauma pain. So she wants me to take ellevil (Sp?) at night to help my body handle the pain. I have to take that for 6 months. **Sigh** I am waiting for them to be filled
