Home Remedies for Shingles



Shingles or Herpes Zoster is a skin infection caused by Varicella Zoster virus. The infection is very painful, leads to the formation of rashes and blisters on the skin surface. Inflammation of the ganglia of cranial or spinal nerves is triggered by the virus which may remain dormant within the body of the nerve cell. Once the ganglia are inflamed due to the reactivation of virus, it takes the shape of shingles. Though shingle is short- lived, lasting for two to three weeks, the nerve pain or post herpetic neuralgia may continue for months.

Shingle often breaks out as an aftermath of chicken pox or other such viral disease. The shingle rashes develop in patterns resembling strips, and affect one side of the body. Shingle is common in people over the age of 60 and people with a weakened immune system.
