TCM Herpes Zoster (Shingles) Treatment Theory

From a TCM Theory perspective herpes zoster is an invasion of external wind-heat, much like other viral infections. The wind-heat leads to heat in the Blood which causes the symptoms of pain, itching, skin sores, etc. With regards to acupuncture treatment, the condition is looked at largely as a local condition and treatment depends greatly on the area(s) affected.
