Herpes Zoster

  by Dr. Yiannis Neofytou

Herpes Zoster
Shingles is an insidious virus as it can infect the body once, but the risk of recurrence after a very long time remains a lifetime as its appearance is associated with the reactivation of the chickenpox virus.
The signs of shingles usually affect only a small part of one side of your body. These symptoms may include:
* Pain, burning, numbness or tingling
* Sensitivity to touch
* A red rash that starts a few days after the pain
* Blisters with liquid
* Itching
There is no known cure for shingles, but early treatment with antiviral drugs can speed healing and reduce the risk of complications. These medicines include: Acyclovir (Zovirax), Valacyclovir (Valtrex), Famciclovir (Famvir).


Mesopen is an alternative form of mesotherapy. It helps the penetration of active substances, creating portals of entry into the skin barrier with the creation of controlled micronulls, thanks to its specially designed head (pen with 12 tiny titanium pins), without obvious skin injury. Through this mechanism of action, the penetration capacity of the active substances increases.
