Herpes zoster oticus (HZ oticus) is a viral infection of the inner, middle, and external ear. It is extremely painful. Although there is little reliable evidence available as to effective treatment for HZ oticus, a combination of antivirals, analgesic and corticosteroids are usually prescribed.
Vaccinations are recommended in all patients over 60.
