We need to find out if it is shingles or if it is herpes. It is very unusual for shingles to recur. In the case of shingles as well as herpes, it is imperative that patients see their doctor as soon as possible for one of the anti-herpetic drugs. The dosage for herpes zoster is much higher than for herpes simplex. But for both of these conditions there is no cure.
