Herpes Zoster: Efficacy of Intravenous Ozone Therapy in Treating Severe Forms

Herpes Zoster is a serious neurological and dermatological condition caused by the varicella-zoster virus. This virus affects the nervous system, with symptom severity and location varying based on the extent of the infection.


Patients typically experience intense burning pain along the affected nerves, accompanied by a red, blistering rash on the skin over these areas. Even the slightest touch can cause severe pain. Many patients quickly develop chronic fatigue syndrome, especially in chronic cases.

Certain unique forms of Herpes Zoster can affect the brain, optic nerve, and auditory nerve, among others. Pain relief medication often proves ineffective in managing the pain.

The acute phase of Herpes Zoster lasts from one to three months. With antiviral drugs, vitamins, and a healthy immune system, most patients recover. Those who do not may enter a chronic phase, enduring lifelong pain and relying on pain relief medications.

Severe forms of Herpes Zoster are particularly challenging as they often do not respond to painkillers. The virus may invade the peripheral nerves, spinal cord, and brain. Patients with this condition endure constant, severe burning pain and may seek euthanasia, commit suicide, or consume large quantities of painkillers and alcohol for temporary relief.
