Our expert says:
The bad news is that the pain can persist for months after such an attack although her predinsone may protect her to some extent. It sometimes help if they take antidepressants like Tryptanol because it is a nerve pain ( some antidepressants and antiepileptic drugs help for nerve based pain as it changes the pain pathway) and otherwise something like Tramadol or Dolorol Forte. There is not much you can do for the scarring except maybe try tissue oil. In future if she gets any signs of a recurrence please let her go onto antiviral medication within the first 24 hours!
