Ugh poor thing. It's becoming more of an any age illness. Walker had it a year and a half ago, he was 8. Where is it on her? My best friend had it this past Christmas, around her waist.

Walker's was on his arm. 2 Stat care Drs said it was shingles, our ped said it was not because it wasn't on 1 nerve path, he said it was a contact rash but there is nothing he could have had his entire arm in to cause that. Stat Care gave him an anti viral which he would not take but the ped wanted him to have a steoid cream. When I asked what will the cream do if it is shingles he said "it will make it worse", he did not sound convincing enough that he was entirely sure it was not shingles so no way was I putting it on him. He said if it's contact it will be gone in a week, if it's shingles it will take at least 3 weeks. 3 weeks later we could still see where it was.


My uncle had them in his anus and a friend had them across her breast when her youngest was breastfeeding. OUCH
