Is the voltaren gel good for shingles?

Voltaren gel is a topical non-steroidal anti-inflammatory gel usually used to treat
pain and inflammation associated with muscles and joints.
It is not typically used to treat shingles pain - check with your doctor though.
Are you wanting to treat post-shingles pain?
Have you tried Lidoderm (a topical anesthetic) or Capsaicin cream?
Talk with your doctor or pharmacist for more information.

Be very aware before using anything containing Capsaicin, in particular, if your skin is sensitive. I used it once to help with arthritis and it set me on fire. Can’t imagine what it would do if applied to shingles, which I now have again. free discount card
