    Shingles occurs in varying degrees that range from a slight rash to a very painful blistering rash. If your case of shingles is mild, you may be able to use your regular moisturizer. However, if your case of shingles is severe, talk to your doctor or dermatologist about how to care for your skin, including how and whether to moisturize it, especially the affected areas.
