Itchy eyelids,forehead and eyebrows

I had shingles in this area and the top of my head on the right side 3 years ago. I constantly have severe itching and slight pain. It is worse at night when sleeping on that side of my head. I have not found any doctor who can help me. I know it is strange. I also have rosacea across the nose but my left eye does not itch so I believe it only is the shingles. Any one have any suggestions or have this problem?

Previous post did not say my eye, eyelid, and eyebrow along with the forehead and top of my head is what itches.

I had just started to develop shingles on sunday night, first i didn't know what it is, i usually get a few on my nose. This time i had about four lumps and went to the chemist for some cream. When i used the cream, 2minutes later my face flared up. This is not day two and i have over 100 lumps on my eyelid, forehead and eyebrows. Has anyone had the same condition and how long do you think this will last?

If shingles affects the face, the virus may be affecting the cornea. Damage to the eye can occur in the form of scarring, having permanent consequences for vision. As with PHN, early treatment is likely the key to preventing eye damage.
