Dear Dr. Gott,
I have had shingles 3 times. Each time it gets worse. I would like to have to vaccine, but after
reading a pamphlet from the medication, it seems
that one must wait a full year after having the infection. And one must also wait 2 months before
coming in contact with infants, for fear of infection. I have 2 six month old granddaughters
who I would then not be able to be near for over 2 months. These factors must be considered and were not in your column. Is there anything I need to know that I have not been told?
Thanks for your time.

A natural Shingles relief treatment is the use of special ointments. Several ointments available in your local health store are known to provide relief in itchiness as well as aid in drying up the skin lesions for faster healing
