Shingles is triggered by the varicella-zoster virus (also known as VZV) — the same virus that is responsible for chickenpox. Even after chickenpox has got treated, the virus sometimes does not leave the body, lying inert in tissues in the region of the spinal chord and brain. It can then go on to cause shingles — a disease with very different symptoms — usually several years after the initial infection. The homeopathic medicines that I have found to be ideal for cases of shingles are Ranunculus Bulbous, Croton Tiglium, Asterias Rubens, Cedron, Dolichos, and Dulcamara. I feel that Ranunculus Bulbous works best in cases of herpetic eruptions that cause a lot of itching. Croton Tiglium is more suited for patients suffering from the stinging and smarting pain of eruptions. I prefer to prescribe Cedron in cases of shingles with radiating pain. Dolichos and Dulcamara are also homeopathic remedies that are effective for herpes zoster. Since these homeopathic medicines are derived from natural substances, they are safe along with being successful and being free from side-effects. For individualistic medicine selection you can visit me online. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects.
