How your pain can cause nerve damage:

The severe pain that you experience with your shingles is not just a symptom; it is a part of the problem.  The spinal nerves where pain is processed are not programmed to deal with such prolonged, intense pain.  In many cases, such pain over-stimulates the signal processing system, and causes it to "reset" the pain processing to a new level.   Read More>

What You Should Know About Shingles

What you can do about your pain:

Instead of suffering through your shingles, take every measure available to treat the pain and the virus.  If you visit your doctor as soon as the condition begins, and you have no conditions that would indicate a health risk, your doctor may be able to prescribe antiviral medicine.  Do take it. The expense is absolutely worth the advantages of suppressing the virus. 

Antiviral medication is not designed to relieve the pain of shingles, however, and it may take a significant amount of time for the medication to begin alleviating your pain.  In the meantime, your pain is increasing your risk of serious, long-term nerve damage known as post herpetic neuralgia, or PHN.

Whether or not you are taking antiviral medication, therefore, it is imperative that you reduce the intensity of your shingles pain quickly.  As soon as possible after you realize that you have shingles, apply The Shingles Solution™ to relieve your pain and help protect against deep nerve damage and disruption of your pain signal mechanism. The Shingles Solution™ is designed specifically for pain caused by the varicella zoster virus, and for many people the relief is almost instant. 

By applyingThe Shingles Solution™, you may be able to lower your risk of developing PHN.

Who is at the greatest risk of shingles complications?   How can I protect myself?

Those most at risk for life-threatening complications of shingles are people who:  1) have recently had surgery, organ transplant, or serious illness;  2) have weakened immune systems due to age, chemotherapy treatments, steroid treatments, HIV/Aids, decreased kidney function, or otherwise poor health; or 3) have had a previous shingles outbreak, especially if the shingles resulted in scarring or in post-herpetic neuralgia.

Protecting yourself against complications has two factors:  an oral or intravenous medication to aid the body's immune response, prescribed by your doctor at his discretion; and a topical treatment to relieve the pain, speed healing of the lesions, reduce viral reproduction, minimize the exterior symptoms, and reduce risk of bacterial infection as quickly as possible.

Usually, antiviral medication will only be prescribed if the shingles outbreak is diagnosed within the first few days of symptoms.  As soon as you suspect you have shingles, see a dermatologist or your primary care physician if the pain is on your arms, trunk, or legs, or consult an ophthalmologist if the pain is on your face.  Mayo Clinic eye shingles research revealed that as little as one day's delay in treating eye shingles, from 3.8 days to 4.8 days after the first sign of shingles, increased the risk of serious eye damage almost five times.  Antiviral medication may protect not only your eyes, but your internal organs.

Secondly, whether or not you have been prescribed antiviral medication, apply The Shingles Solution™ as soon as possible. The Shingles Solution™ contains powerful antimicrobial agents formulated for specific action against the varicella zoster virus, and in addition to giving pain relief, it can reduce viral reproduction and lower your risk of internal and external complications.

To apply The Shingles Solution™, wash the affected area with a cleanser that will not leave a residue, then spread a thin layer of cream over the area several times per day.  Note that The Shingles Solution™ contains an eye irritant. It is not for use in or near the eyes.
