My mother had unbearable pain in leg as she had an attack of Shingles / Herpes Zoster. She had very little knowledge of protocols. Yet she took six drop doses three times a day for three days. The consequent over reaction was unavoidable but the inflammation of the nerves was gone with just light tingling sensation remaining on the fourth day. This is a miracle given that others with a similar condition wouldn’t want to live with the pain. This is without any prescription pain killers or anti-virals.
