I have always had lumps in my breast since I was twenty. I also had shingles when I
was 27, however it was around my waistand it lasted about 2 months. My mother
had died the previous year. I have had small spots hear and there on my legs that
itch turn red and go away. A few months ago, I had a terrible outbreak of shingles
under my left breast around under my arm to the middle of my back. The pain was
terrible. Since I have great difficulty taking medication due to extreme nausea and headaches,
I decided to ride it out with home remedies for the itching and loads of antiinflamatory herbs.
It lasted about 2 months. It left very bad scars. However, I noticed that the lumps in my
left breast have become more pronounced and there is tenderness. There is also some
shooting pains in the area of the scarring. Does Shingles exacerbate breast lumps?
Is there a vaccine that will reduce the chance of a future outbreak? Thank you.
Note: Within the last 2 years my beloved sister died and 3 very close 1st cousins. I notice
that the small spots appear on my leg when I am under this type of stress. I am 64 years
of age and in otherwise good health. I have blood work done every year.
Please advise your opinion.
