Shingles—also known as Herpes Zoster—is a viral infection that presents itself with skin rashes. Shingles is caused by the same virus that results in chickenpox, which is known as the varicella-zoster virus. Traces of the virus remains inactive in the body following a case of chickenpox until it becomes active again due to another condition that suppresses the immune system.
The infection is very prevalent among the elderly and can be spread to those who have never gotten vaccinated for chickenpox nor had an outbreak. Detecting the outbreak promptly even without a definitive diagnosis and receiving treatment as soon as you begin to experience symptoms is imperative to circumventing more serious complications such as nerve damage and dangerous infections.
A proper shingles treatment is necessary to relieve the pain and other symptoms brought on by shingles as the primary issue that needs to be addressed with regards to the viral infection is the inflammation.
Standard Shingles Treatments
Once your physician ascertains that you have shingles, he or she may recommend the following treatment options:
– Antiviral medications such as acyclovir or valacyclovir; these medications work by diminishing the severity and shortening the length of outbreaks.
– Over-the-counter pain medications such as ibuprofen; these are used to ease the pain and irritation associated with a shingles outbreak.
Emuaid for Shingles
Another new option is a cutting-edge and scientifically backed-up topical medication known as Emuaid. This topical cream is formulated with potent natural substances to relieve irritation, soothe inflammation caused by numerous conditions and ease symptoms associated with chronic, stubborn skin disorders.
Containing numerous essential ingredients associated with the treatment of various skin conditions, Emuaid spurs blood circulation to speedily incite the growth of healthy, new skin cells and prevent scarring. As opposed to many other products used in the treatment of shingles rashes, Emuaid does not contain any substances that contribute to irritation, and its potency comes directly from 100% natural ingredients.
The topical treatment has two versions: Emuaid and EmuaidMax. The former is preferred for cases with mild symptoms, whereas the latter improves more severe symptoms, including post-herpetic neuralgia.
