What is Local Family Physician

Family medicine is a specialty that focuses on comprehensive primary care of people of all ages. Having a long-lasting relationship with a local family doctor who knows your health history and current dietary needs is greatly beneficial. A family physician can diagnose and treat all types of conditions that might require medication, surgery or lifestyle changes such as eating more calcium. Because there is such a connection between your health and what you eat, your local family physician may advise you to work with a local registered dietitian or nutritionist. For example, eating a diet low in sodium and fat can reduce your risk of developing heart disease or stroke.

Shingles can be very challenging to diagnose.

It's important that you as a partner in your healthcare with your family doctor, think about what's happening.

A prodrome or an early warning sign for shingles can include fevers and chills, it can include tingling and burning on one side of your body or chest or leg. It's important you speak to your physician within the first 72 hours if you see a rash or if you see bubbles appearing on your body on one side.

Once you've been diangosed with an acute case of shingles or zoster your family physician will speak to you about medication options. They typically include antiviral therapy, which can be 7 days. You may need a referral to an opthamologist in cases of involvement of the eye.

It's important you speak to your physician about a proper diagnosis, because a whole host of things can mimic shingles, such as a bacterial infection. The reason why you need to speak to your physician right away is we're trying to prevent the risk of postherpetic neuralgia, which is a painful condition.

If you have this condition, your physician will work with you to find a combination of medications to treat the pain. It's important if you have any questions or any concerns that you make an appointment to speak to your physician or your local expert.

Treatments vary according patient as well as physician so once again, make an appointment and speak to your physician.
