I posted a couple days ago about horrific pain on my scalp and face mottling within hour of 6 large box restylane. RN no help. ER doc DX shingles, only on face where mottling was and scalp. 58, had chickenpox, cold sores frequently, would never get injectable there. I think I should have been told about this possibility. product label mentions it may be a "herpetic trigger" I understand some docs take this history and advise on possibility of trigger, especially someone over 50.
Finally diagnosed properly. Not shingles. Doc says I have to wait it out. I'm upset, still in pain, sores and dark places on side of face, hairline to almost chin, sores, tingling, pain, sores on large area scalp, swelling both sides of head still, Want this to be over soon. Any ideas? Should I see a neurologist or other specialist? Aching pain constant, need advil all the time. Worried about permanent scarring and who knows what else. Any thoughts, please.
