INFECTIOUS DISEASE

Viral Illnesses

Shingles is a skin rash caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox. As the virus reactivates, it causes pain and tingling and eventually a rash of short-lived blisters. The word shingles is come from the Latin word cingulum, meaning belt or girdle.

Treatment

Shingles usually gets better on its own without treatment. But oral antiviral medications, such as acyclovir (Zovirax), valacyclovir (Valtrex) and famciclovir (Famvir) can lessen the pain, speed up the healing of shingles blisters, and reduce the severity or duration of complications. You need to take these medications as early as possible, or they're not effective. In some cases, doctors may combine antiviral medications with corticosteroids, which can reduce swelling and pain. Your doctor can also prescribe pain medications, if the pain from your shingles is severe.

If you develop postherpetic neuralgia as a complication of shingles, you may need other treatments depending on the nature of your pain. Your doctor may prescribe tricyclic antidepressant drugs, such as amitriptyline (Elavil), or certain anticonvulsants such as gabapentin (Neurontin), to lessen your pain. You may also ease discomfort by using a topical over-the-counter ointment called capsaicin (Zostrix, Zostrix-HP) or a skin patch that contains the pain-relieving medication lidocaine.
