Shingles are a painful rash, usually around your torso, caused by a viral infection. The same virus that is responsible for chicken pox. It lies dormant in brain and spinal cord nerve tissue until it awakens as shingles.
Although shingles can be painful, it is not life threatening.
While shingles are caused by a virus, which antibiotics are absolutely ineffective, they can be destroyed. Each virus has a membrane that must stay intact in order to live. HEALlix melts away the membrane of each virus and therefore can never mutate, including the Shingles virus.
My son had shingles on his lower back, a terrible pain, which looked horrible. After 3 days of applying HEALlix, his shingles had dried up. The pain was gone.
