Hi, Anon.

Thank you for posting.

There is no cure for shingles, but treatment may shorten the length of illness and prevent complications. Treatment options may include:

-Antiviral medicines to reduce the pain and duration of shingles.

-Pain medicines, antidepressants, and topical creams to relieve long-term pain.

Discuss these options with your doctor.
