Brief Answer:
Topical applicants

Detailed Answer:
Dear sir,
Thanks for being in follow-up.

The pain will remit slowly. In addition to medicines, to topical applicants like gabapentin or capsaicin gel can be used.This time period has to be covered with symptomatic management.

Beyond these measures, nothing specific to do.

Hope that helps.If you have any further questions,I shall be glad to have you in follow-up.

Brief Answer:
Local applicants

Detailed Answer:
Dear sir,

As I said that no specific measures exist except the above discussed.So, till the nerve heals we have to keep the symptoms in check by using a combination of oral medicines with dose adjustment or local antineuralgic applicants like capsaicin gel.
