Eye Affected

Posted by M (Ortonville, Mich) on 07/07/2007

I have shingles on my forehead and nose and eye. my eye runs like a river. took antiviral for 7 day and was completely better. 3 days later it all came back twice as hard was put back on antiviral for 20 more days and it hasn't helped. been to the eye dr 6 times its now gone into neuralgia and painful. will try the vinegar tried dsmo without any help. does anyone out there have anything that will help my eye from running. I am sure its caused from the nerve from the shingles I went on 40 mg of predison a day and it helped for a few days only the eye but am going off it gradually now please help me.

What worked for me was the lavender oil, which is applied with fair amount of frequency every 15 minutes for half a day, at least. But must be applied thinly enough so that the smell doesn't irritate the eyes. ACV and DMSO wouldn't work.

The other one that has worked with me was a 3% solution of zinc chloride and 5% solution magnesium chloride applied with the same frequency intervals.
