Post herpetic neuralgia is a neuropathic pain condition that is associated with the herpes zoster virus. It is common to contract this virus during childhood in the form of chickenpox. Though the body then develops immunity, the virus itself remains dormant within the body and presents a risk for reemergence, particularly during periods of elevated stress or suppressed immune function.
There is no cure for post herpetic neuralgia. Several treatment options are available for managing the symptoms of pain associated with post herpetic neuralgia. Individuals are encouraged to speak with their doctor about treatment options that are right for them.
