I was diagnosed with shingles about two and a half weeks ago. I have a few spots that are healing in my eyebrow and my hairline along with a little red spot above my eyebrow. The pain is getting less although it is still there. I am supposed to be going back to work next week and if I do I will be wearing foundation on my forehead. Can anyone tell me when it is safe to wear makeup on the spots? I don't want to do anything at this point to cause an infection. My doctor said the spots looked like they were drying out and it should be okay, but I am not sure. Also, I have an appointment to have my hair colored in two weeksand want to know when it is safe to have your hair colored after having shingles. I am sure that the few spots in my hairline won't be completely faded by then, but will be alot faded. I am really having a hard time with the shingles being were it is, because other than makeup it can't be covered up. Any advice would be appreciated.
