5 Natural Treatments For Shingles

September 19, 2016

Take a Cool Bath

Cool water can help ease the painful, uncomfortable skin of shingles. Soak in the water for several minutes, and then dry your skin completely.

Be sure the water isn’t too cold, though. Your skin will react to water if the temperature is too low, which could lead to more pain.

Wash any towels that come into contact with your skin in the hottest water setting on your washing machine.

Open blisters or scratched skin can transmit the varicella-zoster virus. The risk is low, but it’s better to be safe.
