The objectives of treating herpes zoster are: (1) acute pain reduction; (2) promotion of recovery of epidermal defects and prevention of secondary infections; and (3) reduction or prevention of post‐herpetic neuralgia. The objective of the treatment of post‐herpetic neuralgia is primarily pain alleviation and improvement of the quality of by: 3.

VZV remains dormant in the dorsal root and cranial ganglia and can reactivate later in a person’s life and cause herpes zoster, which appears predominantly in older adults, but may also occur in those that are immunocompromised.

Postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) is a neuropathic pain condition that develops in approximately 15% of individuals with herpes zoster infection.

The disease most commonly occurs as a result of an age-related decline in cell-mediated immunity. The pathophysiology encompasses both peripheral and central mechanisms, and treatment options include pharmacological and interventional modalities, as well.

Herpes zoster (HZ) is the reactivated form of the Varicella zoster virus (VZV), the same virus responsible for chickenpox.

Postherpetic neuralgia is thought to be caused by the damage or alteration of nerves that register pain, pressure, and other sensory nerves (for example, touch) that occur when the reactivated HZ viruses travel down nerves to the skin. This process first begins when the virus causes chickenpox in an individual; the viruses can infect various dorsal root ganglia (nerve cells) as the chickenpox.I believe I am suffering from postherpetic neuralgia caused by herpes simplex I did not display all of the the 'normal' symptoms of shingles and do test positive for HSV1 and have recently been under a lot of mental and physical stress.I actually bought your latest book (just to learn more about herpes and PHN.) However, I do realize that you discuss PHN more related to shingles (herpes Zoster.) I was also concerned that the pain could have been caused by something more serious, but all blood work (for the more serious) and vaginal cultures have come back negative except for.
