What are the best creams to relieve the itching and redness and scaring associated with shingles?

i had a rash all over the back, shoulder, and chest area. it has been with me for a week and is starting to have scabs, but the itching is still intense. I need to start exercising again, but would like to find a cream that will help prevent scars from forming as the scabs fall off.What are the best creams to relieve the itching and redness and scaring associated with shingles?
I have recommended Capsaicin cream to patients of mine who have had pain/itching follwing shingles. Unfortunately, this postherpetic neuralgia pain can last for some time, so hang in there.What are the best creams to relieve the itching and redness and scaring associated with shingles?
Sorbelene and Glycerine creme.





It is great for dry and damaged skin, my daughters use it alot because they get exema.





It is not scented so will not irritate.
It really depends on if you tend to develop alot of scar tissue. You can use benadryl cream for the itching, but use Vitamin E oil for scabbing. You may also use 100% pure coco butter. There are not usually deep enough to cause alot of scarring, but again depends on your body.
Call your Dr. spend the cash shingles are not to taken lightly. I learned the hard way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
