If I put cream on my infected areas will the shingles go away or do I need an antibiotic.

Here are some things you can do to get rid of your shingles and heal the blisters.

Lysine prevents the absorption of arginine which the shingles virus needs to stay active. Take 1,000mg of lysine up to three times a day. You should see immediate improvement. I had shingles about 15 years ago and after taking lysine my shingles were completely gone in just five days. My shingles had reached the blistered and very painful stage before taking the lysine. Don't take lysine with any milk products.

Apple Cider Vinegar -- You can apply the apple cider vinegar directly on the affected areas by dabbing it on with a soft cloth. Let it dry and then repeat as often as needed. It helps the blisters heal more rapidly.

MSM can help with pain relief. Take 1000mg a day.

Take between 2,000 and 5,000mg of Vitamin C to help boost your immune system.
