Body Area: Head / Neck
Body Parts: Eyes

Herpes Zoster, or "Shingles," treatment manages symptoms and outbreaks, but does not cure this viral infection. Treatment options will vary based on the symptoms present, which may include a rash, blisters, headache, light sensitivity, weakened immune system, dizziness, weakness, and/or pain. Vitamin C via I.V., antiviral medications, topical creams, antidepressants, and pain medications may all be used to treat Shingles. There are many holistic treatment options, as well, including Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.
