Hello Mr.Jamdade;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Herpes zoster is an infection of nerve caused by a virus and since it involves nerve there is pain and burning.Please consult your doctor and get prescribed a pain killer and if the infection is severe then even a antiviral if he feels necessary.To help with the nerve pain and burning you can take tablets of carbamazepine which your doctor may prescribe according to your body weight so please consult your doctor.
