Shingles also are known as herpes zoster, is a painful skin rash.
Most of us have heard if a person has the shingles around his or her body; he or she will die. This shingles rash, or we locally call it as the ''snake'', is it that life-threatening ? How can we determine the early signs of shingles ? How should it be treated ?
This shingles will not be life-threatening if it is being treated appropriately.
Shingles is caused by reactivation of the varicella zoster virus. In Chinese medicine, it believes that shingles is caused by internal poisoning and heatiness.
Here are the symptoms of shingles:
1) Feeling fatigued
2) Headache
3) Upsetting stomach
4) Fever
5) Feeling pain or body ache within 24 to 48 hours
6) Redness skin or rash on the back, waist, and other parts of the body.
Regardless of any disease, there is a slight to severe in seriousness, and this shingles is no exception. The most important thing is to keep calm and seek medical treatment promptly. The shingles is contagious and might infect other people who have not yet developed chickenpox. Therefore, anyone with shingles should cover up the affected skin area and avoid physical contact with others.
With Shingles, the infected person will feel abnormally severe pain, even if the affected skin part is not touched. The rash parts on the body also depend on the person's immunity, nerve distribution system, and the activeness of the virus.
If the shingles rash has spread to the person's eyes and ears, it is likely will cause damage to his or her vision and hearing, and in some worst cases, it will cause blindness or deafness.
Generaly, Western medicine treats the herpes zoster by taking painkillers, antiviral drugs, and injectable drugs. In contrast, the treatment methods for traditional Chinese medicine are different. There are relatively diverse, like internal treatment, external treatment, acupuncture, moxa treatment, cupping, and burning fumigation.
