“Shingles is a viral infection that causes a painful rash. Although shingles can occur anywhere on your body, it most often appears as a single stripe of blisters that wraps around either the left or the right side of your torso. 

Shingles is caused by the varicella-zoster virus – the same virus that causes chickenpox. After you’ve had chickenpox, the virus lies inactive in nerve tissue near your spinal cord and brain. Years later, the virus may reactivate as shingles. 

While it isn’t a life-threatening condition, shingles can be very painful. Vaccines can help reduce the risk of shingles, while early treatment can help shorten a shingles infection and lessen the chance of complications.” 

How to relieve the pain and itching of shingles:

Thentix cannot always heal them although it has helped many people clear them up or minimally help soothe any pain or itching of the affected skin. And as with other skin problems that it has helped with, if the cells are healthier they can defeat viruses and other problems. Heightened immune systems will help as well.

I spoke to a customer recently using Thentix for her resultant pain and itching. I asked her about it and other products that she had used. She has them on one side of her forehead going into her scalp. She has used other products that have helped somewhat but the ones that work to any extent are generally messy and smelly. She said that she liked Thentix because it soaked right into the skin and still made the itch go away. It also smoothed the skin and made it less unsightly. Here is what she said:

“Thanks for getting this bottle of Thentix to me so quickly.  I use [Thentix] for my shingles.  I have them from above my eyes and go up into my scalp on one side.  [Thentix] completely takes the itch away.  I have had other products but they are messy and unsightly. Thentix goes right into the skin.  It helps smooth the skin out as well so it doesn’t look so bad.”
