NINDS:43 Shingles (herpes zoster) is an outbreak of rash or blisters on the skin that is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox ? the varicella-zoster virus. The first sign of shingles is often burning or tingling pain, or sometimes numbness or itch, in one particular location on only one side of the body. After several days or a week, a rash of fluid-filled blisters, similar to chickenpox, appears in one area on one side of the body. Shingles pain can be mild or intense.

MalaCards based summary: Postherpetic Neuralgia is related to arthritis and herpes zoster. An important gene associated with Postherpetic Neuralgia is HLA-A (major histocompatibility complex, class I, A), and among its related pathways are Endocytosis and Immune response Role of DAP12 receptors in NK cells. The compounds allopurinol and ursodeoxycholic acid have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, spinal cord and testes.

Wikipedia:65 Postherpetic neuralgia is a nerve pain due to damage caused by the varicella zoster virus. Typically,... more...
