Ask a Doctor
I’ve been out of work for three days already, and today I was just diagnosed with shingles. I’ve got a treatment regimen with medication from the doctor, but I need to go back to work. I don’t get paid sick leave. What else can I do to get rid of shingles fast? For instance, is there a special diet? What are foods to avoid with shingles?
A healthy immune system is important in fighting the shingles virus, and that means a healthy, balanced diet plays a role. Avoid unhealthy foods with low nutrition content including fast foods, fried foods, processed foods, foods high in saturated fat, alcohol, foods high in sugar, and foods made with white flour.
