Thank you for visiting health24.com.

Please be so kind as to advise what medication you are using. This is a life long infection that is no curable but can be suppressed by the correct medication. For instance famciclovir.

Refer to the following link for a detailed explanation about Herpes Zoster/Shingles: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shingles
