What is Shingles and Post-herpetic neuralgia/什么是带状泡疹和带状泡疹后神经痛?

Shingles, also known as herpes zoster, is a painful blistering rash caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox (the varicella-zoster virus). It is often a burning pain or tingling sensation, or extreme sensitivity in one area of the skin with red rash and groups of blisters. The blisters usually appear on only one side of the body.
Post-herpetic neuralgia is a nerve pain that continues for three months or more due to damage caused by Shingles. Pain may be described as burning, stabbing, or gnawing. It ranges from mild to very severe and is confined to the same outbreak area of the skin.

带状疱疹是一种由水痘-带状疱疹病毒所引起的,累及神经和皮肤的急性疱疹性病毒性皮肤病。临床表现以簇集性水疱沿身体一侧周围神经呈带状分布,临床表现以红斑、水疱、疼痛为特征。

带状疱疹后神经痛是指疱疹的皮肤损害已完全消退,但受侵犯的神经分布区域仍有持续性剧烈疼痛,有如锐器刺入、烧灼、电击、重压、勒紧等,受到风吹或轻轻触摸衣服时都引起剧烈疼痛。可持续数月或数年以至数十年不等,且疼痛白天黑夜均存在。

带状疱疹属中医学的“蛇串疮”、“缠腰火丹”、“火带疮”、“蛇丹”、“蜘蛛疮”等范畴。

What are the causes of Shingles and Post-herpetic neuralgia in TCM/什么是带状泡疹和带状泡疹后神经痛的中医病因?
