Don has shingles.
It started yesterday afternoon with two small spots on his torso. By this morning the two had multiplied and provided sufficient similarity to images of shingles on the Information Superhighway to call for a visit to the GP to have it confirmed.
Fortunately because it’s quite early in the outbreak, there’s a good chance that the antivirals he’s been prescribed will minimise the worst of it.
Poor itchy, achy poppet.
