Post herpetic neuralgia

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - Dr. Christy McLean is dealing with the pain that comes from shingles.

Symptoms include stabbing, burning or sharp pain associated with blistering rash.

Prevention includes zoster vaccination for ages 60 and older, pain medications at onset of a rash, anticonvulsants or antidepressants.

Zoster is the reactivation of the chicken pox vaccine. Seek treatment with your doctor for a localized burning of the skin or painful rash as soon as possible for the best treatment outcome.
