    I have just discovered I have my 2nd case of shingles. I have a very low threshold for pain. Can anyone suggest anything to help.Thanks.

    Hi Mildredann......Have you ever tried Lidocaine Patches? They were designed by a doctor whose wife had shingles and work great to relieve pain of this type. You need a prescription for them and then they just peel off and you stick them on and wear them for 12 hrs at a time....Good Luck......
