Shingles is a viral disease created by the chickenpox infection. Generally it influences in adults those having weak immune system. Have a look http://www.webmd.com...ments/shingles/

The biopsy said it definitely was not shingles.

I wish I knew what a biopsy of DH showed if it wasn't taken adjacent to the rash area.  I tried to google that lol but didn't work.

I agree with you...They don't want anyone being smarter than they are.  The minute I mentioned a diagnosis, they shut me out completely.

I got the results of the biopsy.  She said it was a food allergy of some sort.  sighs............

When I know what foods I'm allergic to and hadn't eaten anything that I tested positive for.  So that's the end of that.  At least I was right, it wasn't shingles.

I'm sure it was a relief when you figured out it wasn't cancer. 

That's kinda neat yours was an identical, mirrored image, did a doctor get to see that?  Mine sorta looked like braille dots on one side of my torso and poison ivy every where else.  I always have to be different so the docs have no clue.  lol

I would've died if mine had been identical on both sides...yikes!


For years I thought I had poison ivy too, and just found out those are not poison ivy plants but boxelder saplings around my yard.   And when the rash would show up somewhere else the next day and the day after, I thought I was somehow spreading the poison ivy.  I did discover that very hot tap water was the only way to get any relief from the maddening itch but it works although drastic.
