Post-Herpetic Neuralgia

Post-Herpetic Neuralgia (PHN) is a condition that could affect a small percentage of people after a diagnosis of shingles. It is the most common complication of shingles. After shingles, the virus stays in your body. It doesn’t cause any issues in most of the patients, but a small percentage could develop PHN specially when their immune system is suppressed. There is no cure for PHN but there are treatments available that could ease the symptoms of PHN.
