-:0:- A PAINFUL COMPLAINT. One of the greatest troubles in dealing with shingles is that the pain is felt a day or two before the blisters appear, and it is im- possible for anyone to say what the pain is due to; it may be mistaken for pleurisy or appendicitis or a number of other complaints. It is only when the spots appear that the true nature of the case is made apparent. The best application is some simple oint- ment, which prevents the blisters sticking to the clothing. Ordinary vaseline may be sufficient; or zinc ointment may be used. If the pain is very bad, a little cocaine may be added to the ointment. The pain is so wear- ing that it is best t-o lie up in bed. If you drag about at your work you will make yourself ill and open the door for other troubles. Some people are lucky in having very little pain, and they can continue to earn their money, but such cases are in the minority.
