Four years ago my aunt had shingles on her face and in her eye. She does not like honey and for some reason she agreed for me to put it on her face and in her eye. I put some of the multifloral honey in a plate and coated a 6 cotton buds as she had six shingles and put one cotton bud with honey on her shingle and chucked it and used a new one for each shingle. For her eye i put a teaspoon in boiling water direct from the kettle to sterilise it then put a little honey on the spoon and then put a drop of honey in each of her eyes three times a day. This was done for 7 days and the shingles got better the doctor and the eye specialist were surprised at the results.
