I went to the doctor and he said this is shingles. He said he didn't understand why I have it on both sides of my neck though. So he gave me cream for the one side. Taro-Mupirocin is the name. I have been putting this all over the spots but it makes it really itchy. Do you think this will help or make it worse? He gave me painkillers but didn't give me antibiotics because it was 5 days since I got the spots and he said it only works if you take it within 3 days.
