What are the symptoms of Shingles?
Shingles is a rash that may arise anywhere on the body, though most commonly on the torso, and usually in one small section on the side of the body. Symptoms may start out as pain, burning, numbness, or tingling on the affected area, which later develops into a rash. Symptoms also include sensitivity to touch, blisters, itching, fever, headaches, sensitivity to light, and fatigue.
Shingles arise following a chicken pox outbreak; the chicken pox virus may lie dormant for years to reappear as Shingles. It may reactivate as a result of stress, lower immunity, and certain medications.
Many people who suffer from Shingles may also develop a complication called post herpetic neuralgia, a condition that can cause pain for years.
How can Cold Laser Therapy treat Shingles?
Class IV Cold Laser Therapy is a non-invasive, painless procedure that uses red and near-infrared light to stimulate the body’s healing process. The laser is used on the affected part of the body, in this case, directly on the Shingles outbreak, to reduce pain and improve healing time. Cold Laser Therapy can also reduce the risk of post herpetic neuralgia in Shingles patients.
