Diagnostic Lab Data: A visual exam was done to determine I had Shingles.
CDC Split Type:

Write-up: Approximately 11 days after being vaccinated I had a rash that 3 days later became very painful and proved to be shingles. Dr suggested I report it as a possible adverse reaction to the vaccine. I was given a prescription called Valacyclovir (generic for Valtrex) 1 gm to take 3 times a day for 7 days. I was also given patches called ZTlido to wear around the infected area for 12 hours on and 12 hours off for 7 days. The outcome is not yet known since I only just begun the medication. If all goes well, I won''t have to go back to see the Dr. However, if the pain and rash has not cleared up in 7 days, I will have to go back.
