Shingles
I awoke early the other morning with a painful swelling on my scalp. The next day it blistered and turned into a big watery sore which dripped for a day until it crusted over. About 20 hours after this happened, about 5 cm away I developed intense itching and then pain, and swelling into my forehead. I assumed I had been biten by an insect. On day 2 I awoke with blisters in this new area which were weeping and painful. On examination by a 3rd doctor he diagnosed shingles and started me on antivirals. My whole forehead is now swollen and the glands near my jaw hurt. It does not look like a typical shigle rash as the blisters are quite large, would something else be causing this or could all these symptoms be shingles?? The blisters have crossed the midline.
