Herpes Zoster

Yes, you smart readers.  The answer to yesterdays challenge is Herpes Zoster, AKA: shingles.  Grady Doc was most precise with Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus.  (involving the eye and optic nerve).  Note that the lesions do not cross the midline as they remain in the nerve distribution.

Treatment with antiviral medication is effective if started within the first 48 hours of symptoms.
