What is pain after shingles?

Normally, nerves send signals to tell the brain when your body is being harmed. These signals protect you.7

The shingles virus can damage nerves and cause them to send the wrong signals to your brain. The signals make the brain “think” that part of your body is hurt. The result is postherpetic neuralgia (PHN).7

What is pain after shingles?
