hi, thanks for posting your query
The above described symptoms are typical of shingles
Shingles (herpes zoster
) is a painful, blistering skin rash due to the varicella-zoster virus
, the virus that causes chicken pox
, the virus remains inactive (dormant) in certain nerves in the body. Shingles occurs after the virus becomes active again in these nerves years later
The first symptom is usually one-sided pain, tingling, or burning. The pain and burning may be severe and is usually present before rash appears.
Red patches on the skin, followed by small blisters are seen after 2 days to three weeks of appearance of pain
The blisters break, forming small sores that begin to dry and form crusts. The crusts fall off in 2 to 3 weeks. Scarring is rare.
herpes usually clears up in2-3 weeks .
treatment is as follows:
oral antiviral like aciclovir
oral antihistaminics for burning
Hope this helps you . feel free to ask any doubts
