2 Things You Should Do If You Have Shingle Disease In The Body

According to Healthline", Shingles is caused by the varicella-zoster virus, the same virus that results in chickenpox. After a person recovers from chickenpox, the virus stays dormant and inactive in the body. The virus can reactivate later, causing shingles. Most people who develop shingles have only one episode during their lifetime. However, here are 2 things you should do if you have a shingle disorder.

1. Avoid Excessive Intake Of Alcohol

Alcohol can impair almost every aspect of your health, comprising your immune system. Most medications used to treat shingles don’t contain specific alcohol indications. But it’s still a good idea to avoid mixing alcohol and medications as much as possible.

2. Use Essential Oil On Your Body

You can try mixing about 15 drops of important oil with soothing properties like chamomile, eucalyptus, or tea tree oil with 1 tablespoon of carrier oil like coconut oil. Then apply it to your skin. Alternatively, you can add a few drops of vital oils to a warm bath.
