Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

The answer really varies from one person to another. Most blisters clear up within 10 days although we have heard from readers who have taken a lot longer.
Now that you are on antivirals, you may heal within this time frame. I hope you heal soon, shingles is very painful.
