About Shingles
Shingles is a viral infection that causes a painful rash on various parts of the body including the face or eye. It is caused by the varicella-zoster virus which is the same virus that causes chickenpox.  If you had chicken pox as a child, you can have shingles as an adult. After you've had chickenpox, the virus lies inactive in nerve tissue near your spinal cord and brain. Years later, the virus may reactivate as shingles during times of stress and immune system weakness.  Shingles can occur anywhere including on the genitals, but it often appears as a single stripe of blisters that wraps around either the left or the right side of your torso.

Homeopathic acute care is the best choice to alleviate the pain and itching as well as post herpetic neuralgic pain.  Homeopathy will gently rebalance the body to reduce the viral flare up, without the need for harmful suppressive medications such as Valtrex or dangerous vaccinations.
