Classic zoster sine herpete (ZSH) is defined clinically as dermatomal distribution pain without rash. Its characteristic is to stay nestled in the body, dormant in the dorsal root ganglia of the spinal after recovery from chickenpox, to wake up when the immune response is most vulnerable, putting to travel along nerve fibers. The virus has not been destroyed but remains dormant in our nerve cells, ready to strike again later in life. J Intern Med 2011; 269: 496–506. Postherpetic neuralgia affects nerve fibers and skin, causing burning pain that lasts long after the rash and blisters of shingles disappear. They were as itchy as, headaches and dizziness, fevers. I know that at age 84 I cannot or should not undergo the very aggressive treatment for liver cancer, so could it be that my doctor is not saying more, knowing that if it is cancer, nothing can be done anyway?
After about 48 hours after the onset of skin discomfort, in correspondence of the painful redness it appears that evolves like this: you observe small punctate lesions, similar to blisters, filled with clear liquid, which then increase in number and range to cluster between them. The CSF was acellular; cytology was negative, and CSF protein was 87 mg%. Cutaneous eruption may be accompanied by other symptoms: fever, headache, chills, stomach pain, insomnia and lack of appetite. The word “varicella” is derived from “variola,” the Latin word for smallpox, another infectious disease that can resemble chickenpox. In the presence of suspicious symptoms in the acute phase, you can perform the dosage of virions (virus particles) by PCR; while, in the chronic phase, the dosage of immunoglobulins (M indicates a recent contact, G remote). It can be applied topically to the base of acetylsalicylic acid and ethyl ether (criterion former adjuvantibus): If the patient responds in a positive way, his response suggests a Zoster sine herpete. My test just came back igg positve, evidence of past exposure, represents good immunity?????
The days are, or at least should be, long gone when the doctor made these kinds of decisions without talking to you. Among topical therapies (care to use locally on the affected part by the eruption and pain): s olution based on acetylsalicylic acid and ethyl ether, which reduces the risk of post herpetic neuralgia; an ointment made from the seeds of peppers, used mainly in the forms post-herpetic; patches or ointments lidocaine with pain relief. Importantly, intrathecal synthesis of anti-VZV IgG antibody has been shown to be a superior parameter as compared to detection of VZV DNA in CSF in diagnosing VZV vasculopathy,5 and VZV myelopathy in the absence of rash in patients whose CSF did not contain VZV DNA.6,7 Nevertheless, the comparative diagnostic value of these tests awaits virologic analysis in additional cases of ZSH. If evil is unleashed upon contact with the clothes, the doctor may suggest rub for several minutes on the affected part, a towel, or if the pain comes by an ‘abnormal sensitivity to temperature, can be recommended hot or cold packs. In the 1920s and 1930s, the case was strengthened by an experiment in which children were inoculated with fluid from shingles blisters. To all it is recommended complete rest, to give the body time to react to the virus. PREVENTION: The prevention of shingles plans to give to children the chickenpox vaccine in a way that does not allow the virus to settle permanently in the nervous system.
I saw my doc who wrote me off for the week to rest up and some better pain killers which have helped and probably why im posting now. DEAR DR. oranges, kiwi, cabbage). Dr. John’s wort with an effective antiviral; Echinacea, to drink as a decoction or tea, which strengthens the body’s defenses thanks to the valuable contribution of vitamin C that are associated caffeic acid, flavonoids and essential oils that complement its virtues antiviral and immune-stimulating. With shingles, the nervous system is more deeply involved than it was during the bout with chickenpox, and the symptoms are often more complex and severe.
