Home remedies for herpes shingles for diabetic

Herpes shingles is a rather common condition and is primarily caused by the same virus that is responsible for the development of chickenpox. However, one of the biggest misunderstandings is that herpes shingles is the result of the herpes virus known as herpes genitalis- which is a sexually transmitted disease. There is also a possibility that you may experience some pain along with the itching sensation and rash that occurs. Some individuals may experience the pain despite the absence of any noticeable rash or inflammation. It is important that you are aware of the fact that although shingles is contagious, it can only spread to individuals that have not had chickenpox at any time during their life.

You could choose from a number of home remedies to treat shingles; however consultation with the doctor would be necessary.

  • Aloe vera gel is highly regarded in the treatment of shingles and helps cool the skin as well as rejuvenate any damaged and hurting skin cells.
  • You could also include some amount of baking soda in the bath water and soak the body in the solution for about 15 minutes. Once done, allow the body to air dry as the use of a towel could prove to be rather painful due to inflammation present on the skin.
  • The simple use of a cold compress is another very effective home remedy treatment option and will help significantly reduce any irritation around the affected parts.
  • The application of calamine lotion will also have a soothing effect on the irritated portion of skin. There are also a number of pain relieving medications that can be purchased over the counter at your local medical store that could have a significant impact.
  • Early vaccination is one of the best methods to prevent shingles from affecting you. While the vaccine does not guarantee that you will not be affected, it does significantly reduce the possibility of developing the condition.
