Dont Underestimate the Severity and Danger Associated with Shingles
Too terribly many people out there in our modern world today associate shingles with nothing more than those unsightly red spots of irritation on a person’s skin – and nothing more. Assuming that shingles are a skin condition that will almost always clear up on its own, very few seek out at the medical attention – or even medical advice provided by doctors – that would help them to better understand the severity of the symptoms.
Do not let this happen to you.
The reality of the situation is that shingles can be absolutely devastating if left unattended, not only to your skin and external appearance but also to sensitive areas like your eyes, ears, and nose. In some (albeit rare) instances, shingles have been known to cause blindness in eyes – but only if left unattended and untreated.
With proper treatment (including topical solutions, online prescriptions, and a whole host of other recommended procedures or medications) you should be able to clear up your shingles in a relatively short period of time. That being said, you’ll only be able to take care of these issues after consulting with a medical professional – an off-line doctor that you trust – which is the real crux of the this argument.
Understanding the basics of the shingles disease will help you to combat this medical issue
Shingles (caused by the exact same viral infection that causes chickenpox) is an infection that can absolutely devastate the human body if left unattended. Beginning with an itchy or burning sensation – with no visible symptoms in nearly stages – shingles quickly moved to a rash stage, and a rub this stage, and then a post shingles stage that all have different complications and impacts on the human body.
Basically diving deep below the epidermis, and this viral infection attacks the dorsal root nerve ganglia all throughout the human body. This is what causes the red, rashy symptoms and all of the pain – but is also why it’s so difficult to treat this if left unattended for too long.
Some people dealing with shingles have added a sensitivity to light to all of the different pain triggers and symptoms that they’ve had to deal with – with those instances are rare as well. A relatively quick moving viral infection, you can go from the itchy and burning stage to the erupted rashes and blisters inside of three days (and at the very most a week). From there, you’re looking at a long battle with shingles – upwards of five weeks – if you don’t jump out ahead of it and try to contain the issue before it gets out of control.
Another real detail that you’re going to want to pay attention to is the fact that shingles may or may not be contagious (depending upon the specific strain of virus that you’re dealing with). It’s impossible to know exactly which type of strain is attacking your body without blood tests and other medical intervention (just doing a bit of research with the help of an doctor won’t give you the tips you’re looking for), so it’s best to stay away from those you love and are closest to and avoid potential infection altogether.
What can I do to eliminate shingles forever?
Whatever you do, do not buy into the people that will tell you to just wait out your shingles (just like chickenpox) and let things take care of themselves. This is a very serious viral infection with talking about here, and it’s not just attacking your skin. No, that infection is going to work its way down the dorsal root nerve ganglia into your body and as mentioned above could attack your eyes, years, and even brain if left unchecked.
No, what you’re going to want to do is take rather aggressive action to clearing up your shingles as soon as you begin to notice the symptoms – starting a full regiment of prescriptions and medications over there with the advice of a highly trained medical expert) and any other procedures that they recommend.
Depending upon how early you’re able to get on top of the shingles infection you may be able to use topical treatments, but if it’s already penetrated deep a low the epidermis and these may prove to be ineffective. At the same time, there are a number of topical solutions that will at least soothe the blisters and rashes that you’re living with – giving you a bit of relief from the pain and frustration.
Anti-inflammatory topical solutions (those that are free of any type of “warming agent”) are also recommended to combat the dryness that shingles will cause – but you want to use them judiciously.
Should shingles spread to other areas of your body (especially those sensitive organs described above) you may need to invest in radiation therapy, prescription medicines, and other medical interventions. It’s best to do a bit of research (there’s a number of communities dedicated to doctors that you can look into for the most up-to-date information) before jumping to any conclusions – and always lean on the advice of your trusted medical professional before moving forward.
