Response from Dr. Henry
Pain associated with shingles and post herpetic neuropathy can be frustrating to manage. Often stepped use of analgesics (sometimes requiring use of narcotics in severe cases), oral neuropathy meds (sucs has amitryptiline or gabepentin), or even topical treatment (such as capsaicin or lidocaine) may need to be considered. Recommending discussing with your HIV or primary care doctor. If severe consider referral to neurologist or pain specialist. KH
