After dealing with this issue for quite a while and tried a topically applied 28% sodium chlorite solution...(as used to make MMS). Using this cleared up several areas of active "lesions" in 2-3 days or so. Application seems to react strongly to these areas...causing itching...causing some areas to turn a lighter color...then causing redness. Probably best to keep application down to 2xs per day or so. Do not apply right before bed...since you might not sleep due to the itching. After the redness subsides...the "lesions" dry up and skin gradually returns to normal.
This also seems to work with "lesions" that are more deep seated and aren't active...but also won't go away....though this takes more time.
Strangely enough...application to areas of the skin not involved causes almost no reaction.
The only other remedies that seemed to work have been tea tree oil and Dermatox...both of which seem to repress the issue...but not clear it. Have also been using both of these along with the sodium chlorite.
Cautions: Doesn't seem to help ones hair....so use it in your hair with caution. Obviously...keep it away from eyes. Test in a small area first?
That this issue was shingles has not been verified...but I had chicken pox as a child and I'm in the age bracket when it most occurs.
