All you need to know about Shingles Pain
Shingles pain is a rash caused by a viral infection. Although shingles can emerge anywhere on your body, it is most commonly seen as a single stripe of blisters that wraps across your chest on either the left or right side.
The varicella-zoster virus causes shingles, which is the same virus that causes chickenpox. The virus remains inactive in nerve tissue near your spinal cord and brain after you’ve experienced chickenpox. The virus can return as shingles years later.
Shingles aren’t life-threatening, but they may be excruciatingly painful. Shingles can be prevented using vaccines. Early therapy can help to minimise the duration of shingles and reduce the risk of complications. Postherpetic neuralgia is the most prevalent complication, which gives shingles discomfort even after the blisters have healed.
