6How this painful infection can be treated at home?
Shingle is a painful viral infection that appears as a rash on the skin. It forms a stripe of small blisters anywhere on your body.
It is caused by the same virus that causes smallpox. Shingles came along with intense burning and tingling pain which is often called Herpes Zoster. Moreover, it is a contagious disease that lasts until 10-14 days. It is more common in older people because people with a weak immune system are more likely to catch this infection.
Some people may experience headaches, fatigue, stress, nausea, and fever when having this infection. All these symptoms are caused due to a weakened immune system. Shingles pain can be restricted to a particular area or it may spread throughout the organ.
There are certain things you can do to protect this virus from passing on to others:
• Cover the rash.
• Do not scratch or touch the blisters.
• Avoid contact with the people who are not vaccinated or haven’t had chickenpox already.
Viral infections usually heal by themselves after completing a certain period but these blisters can be very painful so here are some natural remedies that are proven very effective to soothe shingles.
