Working about in the garden last weekend, and at night developed some what looked like insect bites on my chest.
Went into the chemist on Monday and asked for a consultation, she came and had a look and confirmed them as insect bites, and gave me some cream.

Got up yesterday and they were worse than ever, couldn't get an appointment with the doctor until next week. This morning I decided to visit another chemist for a consultation
She took one look, and said "that's shingles"

Luckily they haven't caused me any pain or discomfort, and it seems to be at the healing stage.
Some calamine lotion should see me through.

I had shingles about 5 years ago.... kept getting an itch on my gut for a month or so , but when i scratched it i couldnt feel it , it was numb, really weird feeling,, mrs noticed a small rash on my side.. went docs who said.. you have shingles but you are thru the worse... It soon cleared up.. the only symptoms i think i had was the itch... very strange .

Anyone jogging?
I take the dogs out for a long walk every morning, but I feel I can go for a jog around the park before breakfast.
Just a gentle jog around the park, then build it up each day.

Any advice appreciated.
