Getting a Tattoo after Shingles?
I'm in my second week of Shingles, and my 18th birthday is on the 25th of August. My mom agreed to help pay for a tattoo that I've wanted for a long time on my upper back. Just to clarify, I do realize that getting a tattoo when I still have the Shingles is a stupid idea. I wasn't planning on it, and a lot of tattoo artists won't even do anything if you have any sign of a rash. I was planning on getting it a couple of weeks after my blisters are all healed up. My shingles are on my left hip and my lower back. I was wondering how long would be safe to wait after Shingles to get the tattoo, and when I would know that Shingles is safely out of my system. Has anyone else tried to get a tattoo after Shingles? (I know I'm really young to get Shingles, and there aren't too many sixty-year-olds getting a tattoo.) Also, I have never had any skin problems with my upper back. Would that somehow irritate where my shingles were, even though it's not in the same area?

i was diagnosed by GP 5 days ago with Shingles. I have a red inflamed area on my inner left arm, which was hot too touch and sore. I was given anti viral news, but I have no blisters/spots. The area under the red patch is like a very hard lump, so I'm not totally convinced it is Shingles. Can anyone help?

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
