is a viral infection caused by VZV virus.
It occurs any where on body in relation to nerves.
It is characterised by vesicular eruptions in clusters and in zonal way.
There may be severe burning pain and itching.
If you have such type of skin disease, then you consult dermatologist
Some time, after the healing of disease, patient may develop complication .. Post herpetic neuralgia

There is perfect treatment of herpes zoster..antiviral tab acyclovir
, steroids in tappering dose, analgesic
like ketorolac ..etc. but all should be taken under supervision of dermatologist.
I hope you got my answer.
