Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Herpes is the name of a virus that belongs to the herpesviridae group and can infect humans. It is true that there are many types of this virus, including alpha herpesvirus 1, alpha herpesvirus 2, varicella-zoster, cytomegalovirus, herpesvirus 6, Epstein-Barr virus, and many more. In your condition, most likely if there is a herpes virus that infects, then it is varicella zoster which causes shingles or chickenpox.
Shingles or chickenpox is characterized by pain, burning sensation, burning, pierced by sharp objects, and it can also appear itchy and numb in certain parts. Then the rash will turn into a blister that contains water, itchy, and like chicken pox. These blisters can then dry out and become scabs within a few days. This condition can occur especially if you have had chickenpox before. The virus that once attacked you hiding and reappeared in the form of shingles. Other factors that can increase the risk are old age, a low immune system, and stress both physically and emotionally. Being close to a patient can also increase the risk of transmission.
Our advice to you, you should consult your doctor, especially to ensure that it is herpes. If indeed shingles, for the treatment itself there is actually no special treatment because it will heal by itself. You may be given painkillers, anti-inflammatory drugs, and a number of other drugs both in the form of drinking or rubbing to relieve symptoms, but in the end, this condition will improve on its own. In addition, wear loose and soft clothing, cover the rash to keep it clean and dry, and avoid using plasters or other adhesive so that it does not cause irritation. So, hopefully answering your question.
