Management Of Shingles That Spreads To The Breast?
I want to ask if shingles can appear in the breast? What is the trigger? Apart from acycrovil, is there any oral medication to speed up healing? Because it is located in a moist place in the breast, it is often displaced and is it contagious? Is the bole covered in gauze?

Shingles or smallpox snake is a skin disease in the form of fluid-filled fluid that feels sore / painful and appears to follow the direction of the body's skin supply due to Varicella Zosterse virus infection so that it can only occur on any side of the body including the face and breasts.
The recommended therapy for this condition is only antiviral, such as one of them is acyclovir, but the duration of therapy does have to be for about 1 week to experience improvement of complaints, and healing cannot be accelerated with other drugs.
In addition to taking the medicine in accordance with the doctor's recommendations, it is also recommended to:
