I got an early Christmas present this year - I've been suffering from a bout of shingles for the last three weeks. It has affected my mouth, cheek, nose and eye. The rash has now resolved but I still have a sore mouth and my skin where I had the rash is desperately itchy. I am 28 months post transplant and have generally been fit and well since coming out of hospital. I am conscious that i have been burning the candle at both ends this year with early starts and long days at work and maybe have been rundown as a consequence. Has anyone else suffered post herpetic itch and if so how long did it take to resolve?
