Eye styes and Imbruvica - I have had two eye styes since I started IB in February, is this a unusual side effect of it when taken for CLL? The last one in May, started out eye stye, then later back of head itching terrible, and rash around eye, then other eye swoll up, they said it was an allergic reaction, plus I just didn't feel good. Found out after a week, they were wrong it was shingles. Now I have been very tired last several days, and noticed another stye came up on my eye yesterday, hoping it isn't going to be followed by shingles again. Now wondering if the stye has a relation to the shingles in my case. I have had shingles 4 times, but years ago, in my 30's and 40's, this is first time they ever presented on my eyes and back of head, then continued onto both sides of stomach, and straight down center of my body (belly button) rash. I also read that some people need to take an oral antibiotic for styes, so don't know if I would need to also. I am using the eye creme from last time. Any input is appreciated. thanks.
