Yes it can last a long time. What is worrying me is I now have a new rash starting to develop on the right foot. It is developing in their same way as that did on the left! What's gonna happen if it turns out exactly the same ? Then I will be in a mess.
I don't know much about shingles and if it continues to break-out and travel around the body. But I did have chickenpocks, and I don't recall it travelling around and breaking out over and over again. If it doesn't, then wouldn't that tell us that it is likely not shingles?
That's what has me worried!
