I had an outbreak of shingles years ago. I remember doc telling me 'there's no cure' - and pain....lots of pain. (Maybe he gave me a Vit B injection???)
Anyway, I took BHT and they were gone! When I went to local health food store (now defunct, unfortunately) and asked for BHT, they asked me if I had shingles. AFTER my cure, doc wasn't surprised - seems he knew about BHT but didn't feel he could tell me about it. (This was probably 25 years ago so I don't remember dose, how long I took, etc. - only that it worked, and it worked quickly! )
My questions: What is the dosage for shingles?? Anny suggestions on how to take?? (If it matters, this would be for 60'ish year old woman, about 110 pounds; and a 70'ish year old woman, maybe 125 pounds.)
Can/should BHT also be applied topically? And of course....how, and combined with what?
And, when the shingles are gone, would it be prudent to continue on a 'maintenance' dose?
Any cautions - other than avoiding alcohol?
And...how about taking BHT as a preventive measure??
If anyone else has had experience using BHT for shingles, I'd appreciate it if you'd share your experience. There are some great posts about BHT - but most of them address use of BHT for other maladies.

[YEA] I have used black salve successfully on many different skin lesions, as well as moles. Two years ago I had an initial, very painful outbreak of shingles on my chest. After several days of suffering I decided to try black salve on the blisters. At first it hurt like heck, but it hurt anyway. By the next day the pain and itching were gone. It took a long time to heal completely, and a couple more spots appeared in the area along the way (which I treated also), but the pain was gone and it eventually healed nicely. I still have scars, but no more problems since.
I haven't seen any other postings for using it on shingles, so I thought someone might find it helpful.Replied by Kat
