Why Shingle Ease?


Shingle Ease is 100% natural and is an effective way to relieve the pain and dry the blisters of shingles.  The main ingredient, eugenol, has an anesthetic effect on the nerve endings, where the shingles eruptions occur.

You have a rash…. Is it Shingles?

Shingles is caused by Varicella-Zoster, better known as the Chickenpox virus.  One in three people will get shingles at least once in thier lifetime.

Shingles is an infection and inflammation of a branch of nerves that is close to the surface of the skin.   Usually only one nerve, on one side of the body, is affected.  An outbreak will look like this:


The pain from shingles can be mild to very severe, and can even cause lasting damage to the nerves.  An outbreak of shingles usually follows this course:

  • Pain, tingling, numbness, and intense itching on a specific part of the skin, usually on only one side of the body, begins.
  • From 1 to 5 days after the pain begins, a rash will appear and then develop into itchy fluid-filled blisters.
  • The rash usually appears on the trunk of the body, but may involve the face, eyes, mouth and ears.
  • The blisters will begin to rupture and dry.

If this sounds like your rash, you more than likely have shingles, so be sure to contact your physician to confirm.  For information about easing the pain and drying the blisters of shingles, click HERE.



You have shingles…. are you contagious?

The varicella-zoster virus causes both chickenpox and shingles.  Both have symptoms of blisters on the skin.  While those blisters are active, you are contagious.

According to the Mayo clinic, people who have never had chickenpox, and were never vaccinated against chickenpox, can develop chickenpox if they are exposed to someone with active shingles.  That means it’s best to avoid contact with pregnant women or with small children who may not have been vaccinated against varicella-zoster.  You should limit contact with these groups for at least three days after beginning any anti-viral medication, or while blisters are developing and not yet dried up.

Shingle Ease can help!  It can shorten your contagious period by drying up the blisters of shingles, and has the added benefit of easing the nerve pain.

What Causes Shingles?

2015-01-17 11.19.39

There are an estimated one million cases of shingles every year in the United States.  Anyone that has had chickenpox can get shingles.  Even children can get shingles, but about half of all cases occur in those over the age of 60.

Shinges is caused by the varicella zoster virus.  After recovery from chickenpox, this virus lies dormant in the body, and can reactivate later to cause shingles.  This can happen many years after the original chickenpox outbreak.

If you have shingles, you can’t give shingles to another person; however, you can spread the virus as chickenpox to another person that has never had the virus.  During an outbreak it’s important to remember these things:

  • Keep the rash covered to avoid spreading the virus
  • Don’t scratch or touch the blisters
  • Wash your hands often
  • Avoid contact with women who may be pregnant, or children who have never had chickenpox

There is no cure for shingles, but there is help available in the form of topical treatments that can ease the nerve pain and help to dry the blisters.

What are the chances?


Are you or a loved one over the age of 50?  Have you ever had Chickenpox?  If your answers were yes to either question, there is a one in three chance you will suffer with Shingles at some point in your lifetime.  An outbreak usually occurrs after the age of 50, or when the immune system is already compromised by illness.  The pain can be debilitating.

Shingles is caused by the Varicella Zoster virus, the same virus that causes the childhood disease known as Chickenpox. In some patients, once the Chickenpox outbreak ends, the virus can go dormant and lie in wait along nerve endings just under the skin.  It can strike again as Shingles years, even decades, later in life.  It can happen when you least expect it.  A Shingles outbreak is painful, and can cause lasting neurological damage and scarring.  There is no cure for Shingles, but there is help available!

Shingle Ease is a safe, all-natural, topical treatment that helps by speeding the drying of blisters and easing the pain of inflamed nerve endings.  It contains no harsh chemicals. In fact, there is nothing in Shingle Ease that isn’t 100% from nature. It’s easy to apply Shingle Ease from the roller applicator directly onto the blisters, to help speed the healing of inflammation, ease the nerve pain, and dry up the blisters caused by Shingles.

What is shingles, and why should I be concerned?

Shingles has been in the news a lot lately, but what exactly is shingles?  It’s a viral disease that’s characterized by a very painful rash with small to large blisters that burst and crust over.  These are usually localized on one side of the body, following along a nerve branch.  The nerve endings themselves are affected, and become inflamed.  This in turn causes intense pain in the area where the blisters appear.


Doctors estimate that 1 in 3 people will have shingles in their lifetime.  If you’ve had chickenpox, you are already at risk of developing shingles.  That risk increases in people over the age of 50, or in people who have weakened immune systems.   There is no cure for Shingles, but with treatment it is possible to reduce or shorten the length of the outbreak. That’s where Shingle Ease comes in.  Shingle Ease works to ease the pain and dry the blisters of shingles.
