What is Shingles?

Shingles or chickenpox / herpes zoster is a painful viral infection of one or more nerves. Shingles begins with a prickling, itching pain followed by tiny vesicles which blister and erupt. The rash persists two to three weeks while the pain continues for three to four weeks. It can lay dormant for years and become active after a physical or emotional stress situation that lowers your immune response.

China-Gel Can Help

Since there is no known cure for shingles, treatment focuses on reducing pain. Prior to breakout when sensation occurs gently massage China-Gel into the area of the affected nerve. This can help to ease soreness and pain while reducing the severity and duration. When applied at the first indication outbreaks have been known to be suppressed. When massaged properly into the skin, China-Gel stimulates circulation and the body’s endorphin response to pain. The herbs, seven in all, are reported effective not only in helping to relieve pain, but also to further enhance healing making China-Gel an alternative to oral medications.
