NeoGenesis Products for Shingles
Shingles are an extremely painful, itchy, blistering rash caused by herpes zoster, the same viral infection that afflicts the nerve roots and causes chickenpox.
Shingles occur when the dormant chickenpox virus reactivates in the nerves. The infection can live dormant and reactivate again due to aging, stress, lowered immunity systems, infection, medical treatments or medications that suppress the immune system.
NeoGenesis Recovery serum should be applied at the first sign of an outbreak to help shorten the time-frame of the shingles rash and lessen the intensity of a shingles eruption on the skin. Recovery may also aid in reducing pain and irritation, as well as, lessen the chance of complications.
NeoGenesis Intensive Moisturizer, Barrier Renewal Cream or Body Cream will be beneficial once the shingles are past the blister stage. Apply following Recovery and use as often as needed to soothe the area affected.
Recovery may be used up to four times a day during the initial stages of the outbreak. Because shingles symptoms commonly last for 7 to 10 days, continue the use of Recovery at least twice a day in the area of the rash for a full 10 days. The healing process will continue, even if the rash improves immediately.
After 10 days, if the areas of outbreak are clear, add Intensive Moisturizer, Barrier Renewal Cream or Body Cream to continue the healing by hydrating the area and repairing the damaged skin barrier.
If you experience long-term nerve related pain from a shingles outbreak, people have reported the continued use of Recovery twice a day helps to calm the area.
