Shingles occurs due to reactivation of latent Herpes Varicella virus. Learn about homeopathic remedies and homeopathy treatment for Shingles.

Shingles is a viral infection that causes a painful rash. It is caused by the varicella-zoster virus — the same virus that causes chickenpox. Shingles are a unilateral, inflammatory, vesicular, eruption caused by latent herpes varicella virus from within sensory ganglia which attacks the posterior root ganglion and produces the skin eruption secondarily along the dermatomal distribution. It commonly attacks elder people, young persons with immunodeficiency are affected, or it can also transmit as Trans placental infection from mother to baby.

Varicella zoster reactivation in the dorsal root ganglia causes structural damage that result in chronic stimulation of the CNS resulting in pain.
