Post Herpetic Neuralgia or PHN can potentially be a very debilitating condition that affects both the skin and nerve fibers. It is brought on by complications of shingle pain or the varicella zoster virus. The pain associated with this condition can continue long after the bout of shingles is over.
The symptoms of Post Herpetic Neuralgia can present itself in many forms. It can start with a simple headache, however other symptoms might include numbness, itching, extreme sensitivity to touches or temperature changes, throbbing, aching pains, constant burning or constant jabbing pain. Since these symptoms can be similar to other conditions, it’s very important to talk with the doctor to identify the cause of these symptoms.
As mentioned previously, shingles is caused by the varicella-zoster or herpes virus. It is thought that after recovering from chickenpox the virus can lie dormant in the nervous system. At times the virus can reactivate and cause a outbreak known as shingles. This condition is not normally permanent but has the potential to be very intense and can leave a very painful residual pain behind. This pain is known as Post Herpetic Neuralgia. Studies have shown that catching and treating a shingle outbreak immediately with medication may be beneficial in preventing greater complications.
Medications have been used to treat the pain associated with Post Herpetic Neuralgia- some successfully while others report unfavorable side effects to the prescribed medications. For those already suffering from PHN there are also some natural treatments to consider like: cupping, acupuncture, homeopathic treatments, vitamin C, and herbal remedies. While some have reported wearing comfortable clothing and using cool packs to be beneficial.
