Health Verdict

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

They say its most likely shingles. If they're right, its a darn good thing that its cropped up on the underarm where I'm still numb from removing my lymph nodes in '08. I feel no pain or itching. I'm to put steroidal cream on it and if its not gone in a week, go back in. Whew. Sounds like I dodged a bullet. :)

Thanks to all for your support and kindness! :)

    YAY for it being something benign! And YAY that you're still numb there, because shingles are horribly painful most of the time. (I've had shingles - just wearing clothing was torturous.)

Hope they go away quickly!

    Glad to hear you got such good news and that it's in an area that doesn't affect you much. My mom has shingles on her face/neck area, not fun at all.
