My mother is 95 years old and has
shingles. She has been in the PHN stage for
over a month. She has pain in one area
constantly and although on pain medication,
the area is still painful. Does anyone have
any suggestions, ideas, or home remedies
that I can apply to alleviate the pain?
Note: Postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) is
nerve pain caused by the shingles virus
after the acute illness is over.
