This toolkit aims to support health care professions in supporting and managing those suffering with pain due to postherpetic neuralgia. Postherpetic neuralgia is a nerve pain that persists after a shingles rash has cleared. If the pain goes, but then returns at a later date, this too is called postherpetic neuralgia. Where guidelines have included both assessment and management, the guideline link will be posted in both sections.
This section provides links to useful information to support self management in people who live with neuropathic pain.
