In terms of research annually, USA, India, Japan, Brazil and Canada are some of the leading countries where maximum studies related to medicine for shingles are being carried out. Shingles, also known as herpes zoster, is a distressing skin rash caused by the varicella zoster virus (VZV). This is the same virus that causes chickenpox. After a person has had chickenpox, VZV stays in the body. Usually the virus causes no problems. However, now and again the virus reappears, causing nasty blisters called shingles. There is no cure for shingles, but treatment may shorten the length of illness and prevent complications. Antiviral medicines prevent the virus that causes shingles from multiplying. These medicines shorten the period of rash, reduce pain during the active stage of the illness, and reduce the chance of getting complications of shingles, such as postherpetic neuralgia.
