Yes, topical anesthetics such as Pontocaine could be used to relieve pain and discomfort associated with shingles.
Depending though, on how bad the pain is, Pontocaine may not be strong enough.
Have you tried Zostrix? It is a cream containing capsaicin (an extract of pepper) to prevent postherpetic neuralgia.

See your doctor for advice.
