Shingles (ouch) What To Do...

"Shingles and What To Do"...

You can blame shingles on the chickenpox you had as a child. The varicella zoster (VZ) virus. This is the virus that causes chickenpox and caused you misery as a child. The thing is thou it never really has left your system. Even thou your mighty immune system has done a great job keeping the VZ virus inactive, it can still flare it's ugly head at times. We start with this sharp, burning pain that crackles like static along whatever nerve route in the body VZ decided to attack. Then several days later angry red blisters rise from the pain site, but when the blisters turn cloudy, you realize this is no ordinary rash. The best tips I can offer for this is:
1. Reach for pain relief medicine: I recommend extra strength Tylenol.
2. Go directly to your doctor, he/she can help you prevent irreversible nerve damage.
3. Take Fruta Vida juice, it will give your body a boost by helping you build immune power.
4. If the rash isn't to bad, leave it alone. You can retard healing if you irritate the skin by applying too many skin creams and ointments.
