Get Lasting Relief from Shingles Symptoms in Tulsa and Oklahoma City

What are shingles?

Caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox (varicella-zoster), shingles is a viral infection that results in a painful, blistery rash that typically appears in a strip on your torso but may occur anywhere on the body.

The rash may take 3-5 weeks to clear and generally starts with burning or tingling pain at the site, followed by a red rash that eventually develops blisters which open, drain, and then crust over.

How do you get shingles?

Once you’ve had chickenpox, the varicella-zoster virus remains in your nerve tissue. It may lie inactive for decades before reappearing as shingles. The CDC estimates that 1 in every 3 people in the United States will experience shingles in their lifetime. It’s more common in older adults but even children can get it.

Why is it so painful?

Shingles pain, also known as postherpetic neuralgia, is the most common complication and affects nerve fibers and the skin at the site of the outbreak.

Nerve fibers damaged by shingles can’t communicate clearly with your brain. Instead, the nerve messages become confused and exaggerated. This causes chronic, often excruciating pain that can last for months to years.

What are the symptoms?

The symptoms associated with postherpetic neuralgia are usually localized to the area where the rash occurred and may include:

  • Burning, sharp, and jabbing, or deep and achy pain that lasts long after the shingles rash has healed
  • Extreme sensitivity to light touch that may occur even when lightweight clothing touches the affected region
  • Itching and numbness at the site of the shingles rash

These symptoms all occur after the rash has healed and your skin appears clear.
