So for the past week had cold/flu symptoms headaches bla bla bla and sinusitis going along for the ride. Abx help sinuses. I have been on higher doses of famvir now for about 6 weeks. Also low dose hc to help. I just thought another virus, slept crap and just sat on the lounge with my iphone drugged out. I am feeling better . I work tomorrow and as has happened a few timez when ive had my head shaved , some call it a hair cut. My wife said the shingles rash on my head was red and inflammed, so it looks like varicella has reactivated again. Im guessing famvir has stopped it but prevented it get worse and recovered quicker. I need to talk over some ideas with my dr. Maybe some time on valcyte. So much for the antibody test i had over 12 months ago saying i had good immunity to vzv. My thoughts are low nk function are to blame . Little information on chronic vzv and chronic antivirals are the only treatments available , i think??
