Holistic approach needed to manage postherpetic neuralgia

20 Dec 2021Registered users

Postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) is defined as pain persisting for greater than three months following the onset or healing of herpes zoster. It may present as a continuation of pain following the acute pain of acute zoster reactivation, commonly referred to as shingles, or following a period of being pain free. Rarely PHN may develop without a classical herpetic rash (zoster sine herpete).
