Yep, I'm about 90% sure it's shingles. I'm not going to a doctor because it's a pain in the butt and everyone here that has seen it thinks its shingles - so the Valtrex (yep - same thing for genital herpes!) is being flown over thanks to my lovely oncologist calling it in for me on this holiday weekend -- the thank you card is in the mail.
BUT that means my plans for a relaxing massage this week are not happening! Sad lamb. What a scam of a vacation! No massages for me for a good month.
Mmmkay I'm off to hang out with my herpes!
