Afflicting one out of seven senior citizens, shingles, or acute herpes zoster, is caused by the same virus responsible for chicken pox. What factors are most likely to re-trigger the virus in seniors? What are the latest methods for suppressing that virus? And what are the common symptoms of PHN, the debilitating pain that often develops after the rash is gone? In this program, Dr. Bradley Geller, of the Pain Medicine and Palliative Care Program at Beth Israel Medical Center, answers these and other questions. The topical lidocaine patch, which effectively reduces PHN pain with minimal side effects, is discussed as well.
