This morning when I woke up I noticed a strange growth growing from the sides of my face. The doctor at the walk-in clinic said that my condition is probably related to the shingles I had last week. Shingles and this rare condition "chicken lumps" are both caused by the chicken pox virus. He gave me some anti-viral medicine that costs even more than the shingles pills! He also advised me not too scratch the growth. But it's super itchy!
