Herpes zoster picture

Herpes zoster is an acute, localized infection with varicella-zoster virus, which causes a painful, blistering rash.

Herpes zoster, or shingles, is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox. After an episode of chickenpox, the virus becomes dormant in the body. Herpes zoster occurs as a result of the virus re-emerging after many years.

The most common treatments for Herpes zoster include:

  • Antiviral medicines, such as acyclovir, famciclovir, or valacyclovir, to reduce the pain and the duration of shingles.
  • Over-the-counter pain medicines, such as acetaminophen, aspirin, or ibuprofen, to help reduce pain during an attack of shingles.
  • Topical antibiotics, applied directly to the skin, to stop infection of the blisters.
  • Corticosteroids also may be used to reduce pain in people younger than 50 who have had a recent outbreak of shingles.
