IT'S A VARICELLLA-ZOSTER VIRUS INFECTION..... CHRACTERISED BY PAPULES, AND BURNING VESICLES AND MACULES..... SITE OF LESION DOES PROVIDE SOME EVIDENCE. TREATMENT:- ACYCLOVIR. 400 MG 5 TIMES A DAY.... OINTMENT ACIVIR 2 PERCENT CAN BE APPLIED..... ANTIOXIDANTS CAN BE GIVEN........ WAIT FOR 3 DAYS AND THERE WILL BE RESOLUTION.....

Herpes Zoster. There are two types of HSV that cause herpes. Although these types are closely related and both spread through bodily fluids and human contact, they transmit in different ways. The virus does not need to be causing any symptoms for it to spread to another person. Antiviral ointment & Anti viral brug like Acyclovir.

Shingles or herpes zoster Reactivation of chicken pox virus causes painful rash Mx tab acyclovir within 72 hrs of onset of rash 800 mg 5times a day 7-10 days In PHN gabapentin and pregabalin Local acyclovir Local xylocaine gely for local pain subsides

Herpes zoster Acyclovir ORALLY. NSAID orally. Acyclovir+ xylocaine jelly locally. Multivitamin and antioxidant orally. Keep the area clean and covered with sterile gauge.
