My crazy story...

Okay so I went to my neurologist on Friday to get my botox injections for my migraines, my doctor noticed what appeared to be a bug bite, l get my injections go to work and wake up on Saturday with what I thought was hives, as the day progressed my sister insisted that I go to the ER I was going to wait until my appointment on Thursday. I get to the ER and am diagnosed with ophthalmic herpes zoster or Shingles around my eye! I'm like what in the world? They were so happy I went to the ER because I caught it in time, it hasn't affected my vision and I'm not contagious but my face still feels like it's on fire!

Im scared I may have gotten herpes. (Recently came in contact with someone who has it) Doc says sore on my back is ringworm. I have flu symptoms too. #HerpesZoster #ObsessiveCompulsiveDisorder #Flu

The person and I did not engage in sexual contact or kissing. They rubbed my back and we cuddled, that’s it. The sore appeared on my back 3 days after (everyone I’ve spoken to does NOT think it looks like herpes) Can ringworm give you flu like symptoms?
