Thumbs up button.

I don't like. Sorry.
I thought I'd like the opportunity to show appreciation for well thought out and informative posts.
Instead, it appears to be an unnecessary distraction. I hope I am proven wrong.

Re: Shingles - Docs?

Not a Doc, just someone with experience - to be safe she needs to see a ophthalmologist ASAP if she hasn’t already.

Re: Shingles - Docs?

Sorry to hear. My wife experienced several years ago, mostly on her back and sides of the torso. We have both received the latest Shingrix vaccine. My doctor says this latest vaccine is very effective.

Re: Shingles - Docs?

It’s a two shot vaccine worth taking even if you’ve had the older one shot vaccine. Hope your wife recovers. Not sure why docs are still prescribing acyclovir when Valtrex is available. I think the latter is better. Now that it’s generic, cost isn’t an issue. Longer duration of action so one takes i...

Re: Shingles - Docs?

Except for vaccine there is no silver bullet for viruses, including shingles. Anti-virals given timely (all will work, though valtrex is more convenient) will reduce viral replication, and will turn down the volume of infection. They do not kill the virus. Ultimately your own immunity will win. The ...

Re: Shingles - Docs?

And for those who have not gotten shingrex vaccine (and over 50), do so! Excellent advice. I just received my second dose of the Shingrex vaccine at my annual physical exam last month. Glad to have that in place - especially since I had Chicken Pox (mild case) as a child. Everyone I know whose had ...

We baked chocolate chip cookies today. Chopped up dark chocolate bars, butter, salty. Now I am having two fingers of scotch with some of these bad boys.

Heaven
Damn, love Scotch with sweets like that. #winning.

2012 Biondi Santi BdM Riserva - Franco's Last

I had the privilege of meeting and spending time with Franco Biondi Santi several times over the years. A sweet and modest man with such a sense of humor. Here is a link to an article by a very good friend, Orazio Vagnozzi, about Franco's final vintage. https://www.we-wealth.com/it/news/pleasure-ass...
