Good answers friends. Try to add something Grouped painful blisters filled with fluid and dermatomal pattern more favour to HERPES ZOSTER (Shingles) Here lesions on L2 dermatome. Treatment, friends given good answers. But here antiviral treatment only reduce the duration and severeity of the infection. Preferably antibiotics for viral infection are MACROLIDES. Thank you.
