Shingles is a skin condition that is extremely painful. It is caused by the Varicella virus, the same virus that causes chickenpox.
Those who have had chickenpox as a child may develop shingles as an adult, and those who have never had the disease may develop shingles if they are exposed to the Varicella virus. EMUAID has been shown to be effective at treating shingles and quickly reducing the discomfort from this skin condition.
What Is Shingles?
Shingles is most common in older adults and those with weakened immune systems. It usually appears in a concentrated area such as a band or strip on the face or body. Shingles may also be referred to as Herpes zoster, although it is not the same as the type of herpes that causes sexually transmitted diseases or cold sores.
Most people have just a single attack of shingles and recover. However, while it is ongoing, shingles is one of the most painful diseases. Many sufferers describe it as a burning sensation that does not go away, while others have terrible itching and swelling associated with shingles.
Shingles attacks generally begin with a headache and perhaps light sensitivity. Later, itching and pain develop. Finally, a rash develops that may cause blisters that break open and leak fluid.
How Can Shingles Be Treated?
Standard medical practice includes giving antivirals and pain medication to those suffering from shingles, then waiting for the disease to pass. However, EMUAID can often help those with shingles. These products also provide soothing comfort from the burning, itching, swelling and pain of a shingles outbreak.
