Extractions: Treatment Herpes Zoster Overview Herpes zoster , commonly known as shingles, is caused by the same virus responsible for chicken pox. After the initial exposure, herpes zoster lies dormant in certain nerve fibers. It may become active as a result of many factors such as: aging, stress, suppression of the immune system, and certain medications. Because of the layout of the nerves that herpes zoster resides in, it only affects one side of the body or face during an outbreak. It begins as a rash that lead to blisters and sores on the skin. When the nerve branch that supplies the eye is involved, the forehead, nose, and eyelids may also be affected. Sores on the nose are a key signal of possible eye involvement. Herpes zoster can cause several problems with the eye and surrounding skin that may have long term effects. Inflammation and scarring of the

Extractions: The medical term for shingles is "acute herpes zoster." Shingles is a skin rash that develops on half of the body, in a belt-like pattern. The rash is usually on either the right or left side of the chest, starting in the middle of the back and wrapping around to the breast but it can occur on any part of the body, such as the forehead and abdomen. Most of the time, shingles is very painful. Sometimes the pain from shingles starts several days before the rash appears. When the pain starts before the skin rash, it can be very hard for doctors to make the correct diagnosis. Many patients have been told they have heart attacks, appendicitis, and migraine headaches before getting the correct diagnosis of shingles.

Extractions: Have you ever been grabbed by a burning demon in your face? I have. It's called "Shingles". Shingles is a disease that strikes more then a half-million Americans every year. Since it took three days of blinding pain for someone in the medical profession to recognize what I had, I thought I better use my website skills to publish my information. There is a theory that the sooner you start taking antivirus medication like Acyclovir or Famvir you lessen your chances of having lasting pain from nerve damage, post herpetic neuralgia (PHN), which I have had now for a year and six months. No one knew what it was when I came down with this. September 10th, 2002: I went to my dentist for throbbing pain in my upper jaw and nose with blisters next to my nose. He said it was not my teeth - maybe a sinus infection. He gave me a prescription for 250 mg Ampicillin. I went to my primary physician, he said it looked a little like a virus but gave me a prescription for CIPRO 500 mg and a decongestant Deconamine. The Ampicillin, Cipro and decongestant did not do any good. By this time I have blisters that looked like someone burned me with a cigarette up the side of my nose and across the top of my right cheek. September 11th: Pain has increased by an order of magnitude. My primary physician told me to go to the emergency room. A friend takes me to Plantation General Hospital because I can't drive myself anymore. One of the physicians, Dr. Carol Lieverman takes one look at the pattern of the blisters and recognizes that it is shingles. Thank you Dr. Carol. Plantation General gives me prescriptions for Famvir 500 mg to treat the virus and Vicodin 500 mg for pain. Also, I am instructed to go to an Ophthalmologist because the shingles are around my eye. So I went to my ophthalmologist, Dr. Tobe Rubin, and get steroid eye drops and Bacitracin ophthalmic salve. She said the virus is not in my eye at this time. For a few nights I had some white stuff caked in my mouth. I brushed it out with peroxide and water.

Extractions: Losing Connections. Here, a slate shingle is missing. The joint of the two underlying shingles is exposed, letting water seep into the roof structure. Slates break when tree branches fall on them or when home owners or "tradespeople" walk on them. The metal nails holding the slates in place can corrode if they remain wet over the long term. If so, look for sources of moisture, such as leaks further up the roof or moisture buildup in the attic space. Re-Connecting. This slate shingle has been replaced with one that matches the surrounding shingles. A copper sheet metal tab is nailed into the underlying joint and bent up and over the lower edge of the shingle. Wood, asphalt and metal shingles are replaced using other methods. Plan your work: Inspect the roof shingles with binoculars after major storms and at least once every year for loose, broken or missing shingles. Repair as soon as possible. Maintenance tip: Repair using methods, procedures and techniques that respect the original system. Match materials in type, size and quality. Build up a small stockpile of matching replacement shingles in advance from shingles that fall off the roof, architectural salvage companies, and building material suppliers.

Your doctor tells you that you have shingles, an infection that affects up to 1 million people in the United States each year. What is shingles? Shingles, which is also called herpes zoster cingulum, the Latin word for girdle or belt. No one knows what reactivates the chickenpox virus, but some experts think it may be age or stress. Most people recover from shingles and never have it again; only about 4% go on to have another episode. Who gets shingles? About 2 of every 10 people have shingles at some time in their life. This condition usually occurs after age 50, but it can affect younger peopleparticularly if their immune system has already been weakened by such things as HIV infection, cancer, chemotherapy, or radiation therapy. What are the symptoms of shingles? The first symptom usually is a burning sensation, numbness, itchiness, or stabbing pain, typically affecting the trunk or facebut only on one side of the body. A fever and a general overall feeling of weakness may also be present. After a few days, a rash begins as clusters of small bumps that become clear, fluid-filled blisters. Later, the blisters fill with cloudy fluid, break open, and begin to crust. Some people experience only mild itchiness; others have extreme and intense pain. After the scabs from the blisters fall off within a few days to a few weeks, the pain fades, and most people have no complications.
Centers For Disease Control- Shingles shingles. Date Last Rev d March 9, 1995 shingles (ZOSTER) DISEASE INFO shingles is caused by a reactivation of the same virus that causes chickenpox. http://www.babybag.com/articles/cdc_shng.htm
Extractions: Shingles is caused by a reactivation of the same virus that causes chickenpox. After chickenpox, which normally occurs in childhood, the chickenpox virus can remain in the body for the life of the individual. It is usually dormant and causes no signs or symptoms. However, due to circumstances not fully understood, the virus may reactivate and produce a localized skin condition. In many instances, shingles begins with a localized rash which progresses rapidly to blister-like lesions. These lesions may appear in crops in irregular fashion along a nerve pathway on one side of the body. The lesions continue to form for a period of 3 to 5 days, with a total duration of the disease being 10 to 15 days. Generally the lesions are more deeply seated and more closely grouped than chickenpox. Severe pain and/or itching often occurs. Shingles has been reported to be associated with aging, a suppression or malfunction of the immune system, trauma, sun exposure, or chickenpox in children exposed either before birth or before 18 months of age. For those with malfunctioning immune systems, the disease can be severe and spread throughout the body, causing problems in many organs of the body. Shingles, although sometimes painful or very itchy, usually resolves without complications. Sometimes more serious effects occur, especially if the lesion involves the eye or nerves in the head.

Extractions: Shingles (herpes zoster) is a viral disease that develops when the chickenpox virus, which becomes dormant in certain nerves after causing acute illness, is somehow reactivated. The distinguishing feature of shingles is a painful rash that develops along the pathway of a nerve in which the virus has lain dormant. Among people who have had chickenpox, only a small proportion ever develop shingles. The disease is relatively uncommon before age ten, but its incidence increases steadily with each decade of life. Fewer than one percent of people who develop shingles will have a relapse. Several factors, including stress, injury and weakening of the immune system, increase children's susceptibility to shingles. Normally, shingles runs its course within a few weeks and causes no serious long-term complications. The symptoms are most severe in a child whose immune system is compromised. WHEN SHOULD I SUSPECT THAT MY CHILD HAS SHINGLES?
