Despite being told by my doctor at the time of my first diagnoses that I would never have shingles again, I’ve had them 3 times in the past. Once on the back of my hip, once on my thigh, and once on the back of my hand, all on the right side of my body.
But, as of today, that unmistakeable rash is forming again…on my left thigh. What gives? Is this one of those things like, “You probably won’t get them on opposite sides, although you might, the chance is so small we aren’t even going to mention it.”?
