first episode on the left side of my back.
second episode on the right side of my neck.
No failure, but I can't vouch for total coverage.
All that has to be covered is the head of your penis as for the singles you are in the age group to contract shingles and shingles are not HIV specific. The only thing is you have to have had chickenpoxs at some time to contract shigles.
Many thanks, Teak.
Also, another question that's been bothering me is the time lag between hiv initial exposure and a shingles outbreak. I've seen sites that indicate it's one of the first indicators of hiv while others indicate it takes years to appear.
Can you clear the confusion?
You didn't have a risk of contracting HIV so the shingles have nothing to do with it.
Thanks for your help over the past 72 hours. It was a rough patch for me, made smoother by your advice.
All the best to you.
