Health Conditions : Shingles
The first signs of shingles can be a tingling or painful feeling in an area of skin and a headache or feeling generally unwell.
A rash will appear a few days later.
Usually you get shingles on your chest and tummy, but it can appear on your face, eyes and genitals.
The shingles rash appears as red blotches on your skin, on one side of your body only. A rash on both the left and right of your body is unlikely to be shingles.
Foods to avoid include: food and juices with high amounts of sugar and arginine rich foods (including chocolate and nuts).
