Postherpetic Neuralgia

more about Postherpetic Neuralgia

  • Post herpetic neuralgia is one of the most common complications of Shingles, characterized by persistent, intractable pain in the affected area of skin. It occurs in about 10 to 20% of those afflicted with Shingles, and it is usually resolved within 1 year. In some cases, however, the pain may persist for years, especially in elderly patients.

  • The pain can be reduced by medication, such as antidepressants and anti-seizure medications. Capsaicin ointment (Zostrix) is helpful for pain control.
