What is postherpetic neuralgia?
After a shingles outbreak has subsided, about 20% of people will experience pain in the nerve endings. This condition is called postherpetic neuralgia (PHN), and the pain can recur at unknown intervals.
PHN pain is neurogenic, resulting from peripheral nerve injury, and tends to occur in the same site as the shingles. The affected area is often extremely sensitive, with even loose clothing causing excruciating pain. PHN usually lasts a few months, but in a small percentage of people, PHN can last for several years.
Until recently, PHN has been difficult to treat, as anti-viral drugs and other medications (including corticosteroids and local/regional anaesthesia) had been tried without much success. PHN treatment is based on managing the neuralgia once it has developed, but because of the neurogenic character of the pain, the value of conventional analgesics is limited. In the past, sufferers had to rely on anti-depressants, which do not address the problem.
Anti-epileptics have also been used, but their value in PHN is unclear and their adverse effects make them unsuitable for the elderly. However, combing PHN No More with PHN No More Soap can ease acute PHN conditions immediately. PHN No More is an anaesthetic, sedative treatment that provides great relief to those suffering from PHN.
What are the signs and symptoms of PHN?
After a shingles rash has disappeared, any pain experienced in the area where the shingles rash occurred could be PHN. If touching the skin causes pain, the patient may be experiencing allodynia, a frequent symptom of PHN. Allodynia is a condition in which the skin is unusually sensitive to normally painless stimuli, such as the touch of clothing or a gust of wind.
What causes shingles?
PHN occurs after a person has suffered from shingles. Shingles is caused by a reactivation of the varicella-zoster virus (VZV), the virus that causes chickenpox. Anyone who has had chickenpox can get shingles, although it is most common in individuals over the age of 50. It is estimated that ten to twenty per cent of all Americans – and fifty per cent or more of individuals aged 85 and older – will experience shingles during their lifetime. Individuals who have existing conditions, or are undergoing medical treatment, that weaken their immune systems are also more likely to develop shingles. These include: HIV; chemotherapy or radiation therapy; corticosteroids; transplant operations and possibly stress.
