Ahh damn man, shingles can be hell. Hopefully you get your immune system up and get rid of that stuff soon! I just recently got hand, foot, and mouth disease which then turned into EPIDIDYMITIS, and if you've ever had these pray you dont get it. Have no idea how I got the HFM, unless it was from my daughter but she didnt show signs of it. I waited until it was all cleared up before starting my cycle.
Your immune system was probably already in a weak state then you got on the test and it lowered it enough for the shingles. I know my first week of test I never feel too good but after that it goes away and im fine.
docs many times diagnose rashes as something they are not. because you are paying them for an answer and "I don't know" doesn't sit well with most. I would stop the test for a week and see if it improves. If it does you have your answer if it doesn't then you can pick back up with it. I would be willing to bet its the carrier oil not some random onset of shingles. I recently have been dealing with a rash and we determined it was from a new laundry detergent, The messed up part is I have never had skin allergies before except for grass. so this was extra weird, I think it was a combo of the laundry detergent and the gear.
I think the doc is spot on, plus he is an NHS doctor. Free health care in the uk!The rash has gotten painful, like stinging nettles. It really will be no pain-no gain lol I agree with you intense, it has lowered my immue system just enough to break out.I always found that coming off the steroids messed with me even more, so no going back now.Thanks for your input lads.
