Shingles are of the same virus that causes chickenpox and is very uncomfortable and painful. A shingle is a rash that forms on the chest, abdomen, or back and sometimes even on the face but usually does not cross the midline. The small blisters fill with fluid and the tapGP online doctor will suggest that the shingles treatment should be started within 3 days.

There is no cure, but online clinicians can prescribe antiviral treatment for shingles that will bring relief to the patient and the sooner they consult a doctor the less chance of complications. tapGP has qualified doctors that can discuss what the symptoms are and how best to treat them.

The online doctors at tapGP will decide if the patient is suffering from shingles and make some treatment suggestions to keep the rash clean and dry, in this way it will prevent the skin from becoming infected. Loose clothing should be chosen and to bring added relief the clinicians at tapGP suggest a cold pack used on the rash a couple of times a day.

When consulting one of the professional doctors online at tapGP they have some advice that should be followed to heal more quickly. One piece of advice is not to use sticky plasters or dressings over the rash and no antibiotic creams this will slow the healing process which can take up to 30 days to clear.

They are friendly and approachable should patients have questions the experienced staff will answer and reassure their patients.

Dr. Hathi co-founder and CEO of tapGP added “The blisters are not contagious to others it is not possible to pass shingles on however if someone has not had chickenpox it is possible to contract it from the patient with shingles. Only once the rash is dried up will the patient not be infectious.”
