There aren’t home remedies for shingles, but there are things you can do to help your skin heal. For example:
Some people find that acupuncture and other complementary treatments help with the pain that can linger after shingles. Let your doctor know first if you want to try these.
Keep the affected area clean, dry, and exposed to air as much as possible.
Try not to scratch or burst the blisters, despite the itching you may feel.
Ask your doctor about creams and other things you can try to give yourself some relief.
