Alternatives for Chronic Pain Management in Postherpetic Neuralgia
June 17, 2019
Responsible by Design: Lidocaine Topical System
Shingles affects an estimated 1 million people in the United States each year. The coinciding rash is known to cause severe discomfort. For most, when the rash leaves, the pain goes with it. But for some, the pain persists long after their skin has cleared. It’s called postherpetic neuralgia (PHN). But now, patients have more treatment options than ever before.
For persistent pain after shingles, ask your doctor about pain relief that stays with you.
ZTLIDO is a prescription medicine used for relief of pain from damaged nerves (neuropathic pain) that follows the healing of shingles. It has a proven 12-hour adhesion to provide relief from PHN pain.
Stay tuned to hear about one woman’s journey with PHN and how she hasn’t let her life slow down – thanks to an innovative new treatment.
