I’m only 35 years old and my doctor just diagnosed me with shingles. What kind of cream can I use to relieve the pain and the burning sensation on my chest, where my shingles are located?

I would suggest you put Aveeno powder or DermBuro Powder in your bath to dry up you lesions a little bit. Calamine lotion can also help. If the pain persist when your lesions are gone or interferes with your sleep I suggest you consult your pharmacist or physician
The pharmacist is solely responsible for the answer.
