Dear Ayush, Welcome to Healthcaremagic!
You have NOT specified whether your problem was herpes simplex or zoster? Well these two are different diseases, & after an attack of herpes zoster, you may feel paresthesias or pain known as postherpetic neuralgia (PHN). Postherpetic neuralgia is a difficult condition to treat but a variety of medications like antidepressants (TCAs, SSRIs), anticonvulsants (valproic acid, gabapentin), capsacin cream etc. have been used for treatment. Please consult your doctor for proper diagnosis & prescription. Good luck.
