Symptoms of Shingles

If you have shingles symptoms, it is important that you seek professional treatment from Medical Dermatology Specialists right away. Treatment methods such as anti-viral medicine will prove most effective if initiated within 3 days of your shingles rash appearing. Shingles symptoms include a painful blistering rash that occurs in a small area on one side of the body. The rash may start as just an area of skin that burns, tingles or feels very sensitive. It soon develops into groups of blisters that eventually crust over and can be extremely painful for weeks. We understand how unbearable the shingles virus can be. Let our nationally recognized and board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Weisman, help you by providing treatment to shorten the duration of your symptoms, lessen the pain and even prevent long-term nerve pain from your shingles as well.

What Causes Shingles?

If you have had the chickenpox, you are at risk for getting shingles. The same virus that causes chickenpox also causes shingles. The virus will remain in the body until it is reactivated in your nerve system, which can be years later. A weakened immune system, due to stress, illness or injury, can cause the shingles virus. Fortunately, a shingles vaccine is available and recommended for adults over 50 years old.

You deserve the highest standard of care when it comes to you skin problems. Contact our Atlanta Shingles Treatment Experts at Medical Dermatology Specialists today for the most effective and comprehensive approach in treating your shingles.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.
Jeffery D.
Dr. Weisman is a great doctor! She was very informative and personally! Her staff were very welcoming as well I'm glad I found her because she is the only doctor who truly explained what was going with me.
Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
