Pressure causes shingles
“There have been a lot happening recently, and my life seems out of rhythm. Now I even have shingles, what bad luck.”
CheckCheckCin: Try not to over think it as shingles is very common. It may be a warning sign that the body needs more rest! The most important thing is to see a doctor, take medicine, and fine-tune your life and eating habits! Chinese medicine theory believes that shingles is in the category of herpes zoster. The affected area is full of red herpes, which can itch and sting. Because it follows the body’s nerve line and grows in a band, it is medically called “herpes zoster”, and there is a saying that “If the snake go across your body, you will die.” But this is just a myth. There are many causes for shingles, such as dampness and heat inside the body, heat invasion, asthenic spleen and dampness, or qi deficiency and blood stasis. It can also occur due to fire in the body from bad mood, liver depression and qi stagnation. The pain of shingles will also make people feel worse and form a vicious circle.
