Herpes Zoster RX according to Dr Krishna Mohan Sir

Thanks again dear Gayathri

Blister beetle dermatitis

Madam, i think its HZ, because paederus dermatitis is not painful, it does not cause grouped vesicles rather a irregular border with peeling if skin and ulceration by 3rd day, here there is no peeling of skin. The edema is still present after 4 days. Just my opinion, I might be wrong madam.

Dear Kishore, This is a case of HZ Herpes Zoster. Treatment Tab Acyclovir 800 mg 5 times a day for 7 to 10 days. Topical application of Acyclovir. In case of Secondary infection, a course of Antibiotics like Amoxicillin 500 TID for 5 days. Oral anti histamines. Thanks again dear Kishore.

I agree with Dr Krishna It's HZ, involving the C3 dermatome, not crossing mid line.
