Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to clarify beforehand, have you ever seen a doctor and declared herpes? What kind of complaints do you feel? What treatments does your doctor provide to treat your condition?
Shingles is a skin condition that arises from reactivation of the virus that causes chickenpox (varicella zoster). Clinically, shingles is characterized by the appearance of a reddish blister rash that feels itchy, painful, and also hot, on the part of the body that is innervated by certain nerve fibers. The appearance of this herpes rash can be accompanied by other symptoms, such as muscle and joint pain, weakness, fatigue, more sensitivity to light, decreased appetite, headaches, and so on. Because the cause is a virus, treatment for shingles can be done by administering antiviral drugs and various other types of drugs tailored to the complaints that arise. Patients also need to increase rest, be more diligent in drinking and eating nutritious foods, while maintaining personal hygiene so that herpes rashes do not experience secondary infections. With a strong immune system, often, shingles will recover in 1 to 2 weeks. Even so, post-herpes pain can last for a longer time, even for years after shingles itself is cured.
If you have already seen a doctor, have been diagnosed with herpes, and have been given treatment, of course you no longer need to be confused or worried wrong. With its competence, doctors can certainly give you the best management.
However, if in fact you have never seen a doctor, we recommend that you do not rush to decide to use medication independently. There are so many other conditions that can cause clinical symptoms similar to shingles, even though the management is clearly different, for example miliaria, folliculitis, impetigo, scabies, contact dermatitis, burns, and so on. Therefore, you should check with your doctor or dermatologist so that you are given the right treatment.
I hope this helps.
