  • Try an OTC pain remedy

    Over-the-counter aspirin (Genuine Bayer, Ecotrin), ibuprofen (Motrin IB, Advil), acetaminophen (Tylenol), or naproxen (Aleve) may provide symptom relief

  • Consider capsaicin

    To soothe pain, apply an ointment containing capsaicin (Zostrix)

  • Talk to your doctor

    Ask about antiviral drugs used to reduce lesion duration, such as acyclovir (Zovirax), valacyclovir (Valtrex), and famciclovir (Valtrex)

  • Try peppermint oil

    Apply 2 to 3 drops to the affected area three or four times per day for pain relief
