"Compression for shingles on a forearm near the elbow? What to use?"

If you are experiencing symptoms of shingles, it is important to seek medical attention promptly in order to receive appropriate treatment. This treatment should ideally start within 72 hours of the onset of symptoms to maximize its effectiveness. In addition to any prescribed medication, you may find relief by applying cold or warm compresses several times a day, taking oatmeal baths, and considering over-the-counter pain relievers. Shingles lesions typically resolve within 2-4 weeks, but pain can persist for months after treatment. It may also be beneficial to discuss the possibility of getting a shingles vaccine with your healthcare provider.
