: I now wonder if any of you have any advice that might help a friend with shingles. He is HIV+ and this is his second bout with the beast. His first lasted only a week or so and was very minor. He is experiencing more pain this time and has more "spots". He is taking 1000 mg. of vitamin C every hour and putting vitamin E on the blisters (poking a hole in a gelcap and putting the oil directly on the sore). Any other advice would be most appreciated.
Peppermint tea, internally and putting the tea bags right on the spots. The West's great detoxifier.

Hypericum [St John's Wort] oil and tablets are of great help. Hypericum sooths the nerves, helps stop the pain and helps prevent scarring.
