You might get quick relief from shingles if you put these directly on your rash. Always talk to your doctor before you use products like these:
Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO): This is a clear liquid that’s left over from making paper. When you put it on your skin along with idoxuridine, an antiviral drug, it may cut swelling and blisters.
Chlorophyll: This gives plants their green color. When you put it on your rash as a cream or saline solution several times a day, it may ease your symptoms.
