  1. Went to the Clinic yesterday. My right thigh developed bright red spots. They appear on the inner, front and side of thigh. It does not itch, but I feel a slight pain. This happened about 5 days ago and just looking at what is happening to my skin makes me anxious and worried. After the doctor looked at my thigh he mentioned it could be shingles. I was freaked out. He prescribed pro valacyclovir. Today is the second day I am using these caplets and I have to continue for 7 days. I leave for Florida tomorrow for one week and hope I will be able to see some improvement as the days go by. Do you have any other advice?
