Shingles is a rash that can happen to anyone who had Chickenpox as a child. Unlike chickenpox, shingles in not contagious, but does cause painful symptoms such as headache, blistering, rashes, headaches, and unclear thinking throughout the day. There is unfortunately no cure for shingles, but there are treatments that can reduce the pain and symptoms. Many people turn to pain killers or other medications, creams and topicals, or many adjust their diet. One of the most popular natural ways to treat shingles is with the use of Cannabis and/or CBD oil.
Shingles is commonly seen in elderly people, but on occasion it is detected among young people too. It comes from the same virus varicella-zoster, which gave us chicken-pox. If proper care is not taken you may loose your eyesight or even suffer from facial paralysis. Shingles are also known as herpes zoster which spreads through your skin in the form of a rash or blister similar to chicken-pox. It is associated with grueling pain, itchiness, burning sensation and sometimes even numbness.
