Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Shingles is an infection of the skin and mucosa caused by the varicella zoster virus. This infection is a viral reactivation that occurs after a primary infection that manifests as chicken pox.
Post herpetic neuralgia is the most common complication of shingles. In this condition the patient still feels pain 6 months after the start of herpes zoster appears at the site of the former skin disorder, and some even still feel pain after 1 year. Patients will complain of pain such as burning or dull pain that continues with or without sharp pain.
Post herpetic neuralgia includes neuropathic pain caused by loss of nerve fibers due to the inflammatory process. Prevention of post herpetic neuralgia can be done with a combination of antiviral drugs immediately after being diagnosed to suppress viral replication in nerve fibers, and aggressive efforts to reduce acute pain. Acute pain is generally treated by combination analgesics, for example with analgesics in topical or patch form, antidepressant drugs, anticonvulsant drugs, to opioid analgesics. To get adequate treatment, you should do further consultation with a neurologist.
That's all, hope you can help.
