Herpes Zoster

by Dr. Yiannis Neofytou

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).
