Acute zoster pain usually disappears with regression of the rash but may be of significant intensity and prolonged duration leading to postherpetic neuralgia. This article is available to subscribers. With postherpetic neuralgia, a complication of herpes zoster, pain may persist well after resolution of the rash and can be highly debilitating.
Background: Herpes zoster is an intractable painful condition. OBJECTIVE: To determine the effect of acyclovir and prednisone treatment of herpes zoster on chronic pain and quality-of-life outcomes. Objective. Abstract Postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) is a chronic pain syndrome that is often refractory to treatment and can last for years, causing physical and social disability, psychological distress, and increased use of the healthcare system. Department of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprosy, National Institute of Medical Science and Research, NIMS University, Jaipur, India. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy, impact on quality of life, and safety of pregabalin for the treatment of acute herpetic neuralgia (AHN) and subacute herpetic neuralgia (SHN). of the patients and the size of the lesions .
The efficacy of topical aspirin/diethyl ether (ADE) mixture in the treatment of acute herpetic neuralgia and postherpetic neuralgia, suggested in a previous open-label study (De Benedittis et al. BACKGROUND: Data on the potential efficacy of acupuncture (AC) in controlling intense or very intense pain in patients with Herpes Zoster (HZ) has not been so far adequately assessed in comparison with standard pharmacological treatment (ST) by a controlled trial design. The efficacy of topical aspirin/diethyl ether (ADE) mixture in the treatment of acute herpetic neuralgia and postherpetic neuralgia, suggested in a previous open-label study (De Benedittis et al. Herpes zoster is due to the reactivation of the virus causing varicella, called varicella-zoster virus. Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, School of Dentistry, Kyungpook National University, Daegu, Korea. Apparent differences between drugs in qualitative comparisons may not be statistically significant when formal adjusted indirect analysis is performed.6,7 In addition, for all indirect analysis, the validity of indirect comparisons depends on how well they meet the critical assumption of consistent treatment effects across all of the trials.6,7 This assumption can be violated by methodological shortcomings in the trials, differences in populations, interventions (e.g. Background The effect of acyclovir on inpatients with acute herpetic pain has been examined in only few studies.
Background: Herpes zoster is an intractable painful condition, more severe in elderly patients. Exposure to HSV-1 is common; a vast majority of the population has been exposed to it. Background. To determine the therapeutic efficacy of combined methylcobalamin and lidocaine for acute ophthalmic herpetic neuralgia (AOHN). We investigated the effect of acyclovir to the evolution of cutaneous changes and acute herpetic neuralgia at the time of herpes zoster infection. One-thousand-and-seventy-one randomly chosen elderly persons (537 women, 534 men; median age 80) were recruited from the Institute of Human Aging (Dept of Psychiatry, University of Liverpool). Postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) is a separate disease entity that represents a complication of acute herpes zoster.

Background: Herpes zoster is an intractable painful condition. There is no consensus on how acute herpes zoster (shingles) should be managed in general practice.

Objective: To compare the efficacy of interferential current therapy versus narrow band ultraviolet B radiation in the treatment of post herpetic neuralgia. Future research may further help in justifying the use of these agents in post-herpetic neuralgia. We reviewed the evidence about the effect of antiviral medicines for preventing postherpetic neuralgia (PHN). The traditional cornerstones of analgesic therapy for patients with acute pain have been oral therapies; however, all oral agents exhibit a variety of potentially dose-limiting or intolerable adverse effects in patients. Post herpetic neuralgia (PHN) refers to the development of pain in a dermatomal distribution after a varicella zoster infection. Polymorphism at the level of drug receptors, transporters, or other proteins involved in drug metabolism or action may have an impact on the effect of a drug. During the past decade, important advances have been made in understanding the epidemiology, pathogenesis, prevention and treatment of post herpetic neuralgia pain as well as treatment of other neuropathic pain conditions.
Varicella-zoster virus (VZV) is the causative agent of varicella, or “chickenpox,” and herpes zoster, or “shingles.” Most cases of acute herpes zoster are self-limited, although the pain can cause significant suffering, particularly in older adults. In this study, the efficacy of oral aspirin vs. Topical aspirin/diethyl ether (ADE) mixture was used to treat 45 consecutive patients with acute herpetic neuralgia (AHN) (n = 28) and with post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN) (n = 17) in an open-label study.
