I had an MI on May 11 2007. One week after arriving home I noticed two fingers on my right hand had small itchy yet painful blisters on them. Thinking I may have somehow burned my fingers I got a needle and proceeded to pop them to drain the fluid but instead it hurt like hell and bled a little . I went to the doctor the next day and was diagnosed with herpetic whitlow . Confused and thnking it may have come from doing some gardening the doctor said it was from a thorn of some kind while gardening yet its common for nurses to get this due to occasionally being poked by needles. I was given meds to aleviate the problem but it came back a few days after completing the prescription ,I was then given another dose and ACYCLOVIR to keep it away ...suddenly I developed SHINGLES in the last week (facial only ) I have been given FAMCICLOVIR . How could I be taking the main shingles defence medication for months and still end up with shingles ? This really worries me and is very painful itchy and ugly . Any advice on what works and what doesn't would be very helpful Thanks for listening . I'm taking Centrum multi vitamins , Lysine , occasional probiotic and as much Vitamin C as I can handle to combat this and boost my immune system .If you have any recipes for topical cream it would also help . Once again thanks for listening .

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
