Crisco shortening will relieve pain caused by shingles, as will breaking open a Vitamin C capsule. I broke out with them once on a family trip to Tennessee to visit relatives. I was 9 years old and my pain was making the trip UNBERABLE for my parents and me. An older lady from way back in the hills told us about the shortening and as soon as they rubbed it on me, I was soothed and playing. Just rub it on the area and re-apply when the pain or itching returns. The vitamin C caps work but not 1/2 as well.

The blisters from the shingles are gone now and only red marks are still visible but the itching, burning pain has been unbearable this past few days. My sister told me about your website and out of sheer desperation I tried the crisco remedy (none of the otc ointments have worked). To my surprise and delight my skin was instantly soothed and the pain slowly began to diminish. Several hours later I put on another thin film of crisco and plan to continue until the pain is completely gone. I would have never thought of using crisco for this painful problem and I am so happy to find relief. Thank you for your website and my sister for sharing it!
