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.
Treat your pain now.
What other complications do I need to worry about?
In addition to post-herpetic neuralgia, there
are other complications of shingles that you must try to guard
against to protect your future health. The virus may affect

What You Should Know About Shingles
What you can do about your pain:
Instead of suffering through your shingles,
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
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
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.
