Shingles - A Virus Which Can Be Extremely Painful, Or Cleared In No Time - The Choice Is Yours

Shingles, commonly known as the herpes zoster virus is a late manifestation of the chicken pox virus known as varicella zoster.

Although Shingles affects millions of adults by the time they reach 80, it is not uncommon for younger people to develop the virus.

When the virus activates it travels along nerve fibers, usually breaking out on one side of the body into small blisters called vesicles.

Within a few days the blisters rupture forming scabs. shingles is associated with severe pain, itching, redness, numbness, and the development of a rash.

Shingles can affect the eyes. This is due to the fact that the eyes are connected to nerves that may be infected with the virus. Early diagnosis and treatment is important to minimize the symptoms and reduce the risk of complications that may compromise vision.

Then there is Neuralgia. (POST HERPETIC NEURALGIA or PHN )

This occurs after the outbreak and in most cases is more painful than the outbreak itself. the nerve endings become sensitive to touch and this can be extremely painful.

It is therefore important to treat shingles as soon as the initial outbreak is identified. If correct treatment is used, the outbreak can clear without becoming a painful neuralgia condition.

always use natural formulations, prefereably, a pure blend of essential oils extracted from plants. This ensures there is no damage to the body and with the correct formula, the outbreak can be cleared immediately.

An excellent company who have been in business many years, and come highly recommended are Healing Natural Oils or amoils.com.

Preventing shingles is important too, and this can be done by choosing a formula which is used as a daily maintanance and will combat the virus internally.

Nobody should ever have to suffer shingles, but with the correct knowledge, an outbreak can be a very short affair.
