Post-Herpetic Neuralgia San Ramon
By now, we are all aware that if we had chickenpox, we are at a higher risk of developing shingles. Shingles is a viral infection that causes a painful rash to develop, typically appearing as a stripe of blisters on the body’s trunk. Unfortunately, the pain caused by this condition can persist even after the rash is gone. It is called post-herpetic neuralgia.
What Can Cause Post-Herpetic Neuralgia?
Patients often feel intense sensations of tingling, burning, and shooting pain that does not let up with this condition. It can last up to 3 months or longer, and the affected area is sensitive to the touch, so much so that many people have trouble wearing clothes. Unfortunately, there is no known cure, but Post-herpetic Neuralgia can be treated to help ease the pain and improve the symptoms.
