Hiya I had a really bad flare last week and the most horrendous headaches and pain in my eyes ....I thought that maybe my biologic Cimzia was not working but yesterday a rash appeared on the side of my face and after itching my head all night I went to to the Drs today and it's turned out I have shingles. I'm about to start an anti viral treatment and have rung the hosp and left message re Cimzia and Methx and whether I need to stop taking it ( I think I do) and whether its ok to go out etc (I know I can't swim with the rash) ...so many questions Ive got headaches controlled with paracetomol but the worst pain was last week and now just the rash. Has anybody else had shingles on their face and had to have anti viral treatment ? Thanks Claire
