I have phn on my face and it is healing, I think. It is also in my ear. The itching is worse at night. I have used Sarna but would like to try something else that works better.
lAre you sure it is PHN? PHN occurs after the lesions of shingles have dried up and disappeared, that is when the neuralgia sets in. I only remember itching while the blisters were there. PHN is extreme pain. Check again with your Dr., PHN does not heal. The only thing I have found that helps with my pain is called "stop Pain" You can get it at Walmart, it may help with itching too.
