Shingles Treatments in Atlanta

Shingles is a painful condition caused by the varicella-zoster virus (VCV)  same virus that causes the chicken-pox. VCV can stay dormant in your nervous system for decades and cause shingles later in life. There is no cure for shingles. With conventional treatments, an outbreak could last for up to 6 weeks. Evolve Wellness Center can help your body heal more effectively shortening the duration of the outbreak to less than two weeks. Read below to see how we do it!

What is Shingles?

Shingles is a very painful rash that can cover any part of the body. Shingles is caused by the varicella-zoster virus. This is the same virus that causes the chickenpox. Once you have been infected by the varicella-zoster virus, it can stay in your body for decades and, typically in older populations, resurface causing a blistering rash. The rash typically covers what is called a dermatome, or one section of your skin that has nerves connected to only one level of your spine. 

Symptoms of Shingles

For anyone who has experienced a shingles outbreak, you know the reality of how painful shingles can be. The rash caused by shingles can feel like someone is sticking a hot poker on your skin.

Symptoms of Shingles are:

  1. A rash of fluid-filled blisters

  2. Burning, shooting nerve pain

  3. Itching, tingling or numbness of the skin

  4. Upset stomach, chills, or a fever

What Causes Shingles?

As mentioned before, shingles is caused by the varicella-zoster virus. This virus can lay dormant in your spinal nerves for decades. When your body becomes fatigued or stressed, its defenses are weakened and there is a chance that the virus could become active again.

Conventional Shingles Treatment

There is currently no cure for shingles. The best medical treatments typically include antiviral medications and pain management therapies. Using these methods of treatment, the outbreak of shingles may last 3-5 weeks. The pain from a shingles outbreak is burning, stabbing, and tingling. Unfortunately, there is nothing more that conventional medicine can offer to ease the symptoms.
