Shingles occur when the dormant chickenpox virus reactivates in the nerves. The infection can live dormant and reactivate again due to mounting age, stress, lowered immunity, infection, medical treatments or medications that suppress the immune system.
Be aware of the symptoms and signs that indicate a shingles outbreak and call your health care practitioner right away. The earlier you begin treatment for shingles, the fewer the symptoms and the shorter the duration of this painful condition. Vaccines can help reduce the risk and your doctor is the one to determine if it is right for you. Your doctor will have treatment suggestions as well.
At the first possible sign of an outbreak of shingles, wash the area with NeoGenesis Cleanser. Apply Moisturizing Mist followed by our most advanced product, Recovery, abundant in S²RM® molecules to help support the skin during a shingles eruption and soothe irritation.
NeoGenesis 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, along with MB-1. Because shingles symptoms commonly last for 7 to 10 days, continue the use of Recovery and MB-1 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 the 10 days, if the areas of the outbreak are clear, add Barrier Renewal Cream or Body Cream to hydrate and support the damaged skin barrier. After adding in Barrier Renewal Cream or Body Cream, complete the routine by spraying MB-1 over the affected area.
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.
