Herpes zoster.

Overview

The pathogen – virus varicella-zoster, can be found in the nerve-centers of all of us,  which is activated when the organism is weak. In the majority of cases, areas of the body such as breast, abdomen and face are affected. The infected areas are pruritic, the patients suffer from pain; and along the nerves some blisters can be observed. 

As we know, treatment of the acute and chronic form of this disease is carried out according to the standard scheme (Antiviral drugs, plus corticosteroids (if needed) and B-complex vitamins). 

But what happens when the patient’s condition doesn’t improve and the prognosis is not positive? 

Such patients suffer from excruciating pain that does not subside from taking strong painkillers (in many cases they get addicted to narcotic and semi-narcotic drugs, which can lead to suicide attempts and alcoholism.)

In brief, life becomes intolerable because of this disease. If herpes zoster affects the facial nerves, it can turn into a nightmare. A patient cannot open his eyes or his mouth, and the pain is unbearable. 

Treatment

The only treatment that always has a good outcome, is ozone therapy treatment (in most cases all symptoms disappear within one, two or three months). Intravenous ozone is a very effective, and acts quickly to destroy the virus. Today, more than 200 patients (29 Cypriots) were fully treated by our specialists and recovered within a short period. 

So, we can conclude that the modern medicine, offers a new safe and effective treatment. Ozone Therapy has big success in treatment of herpes zoster virus.
