Post herpes numbness
I had herpes on my face last week, i was under anti-viral n painkiller from a dermatologist, treatment got over 4days back, blisters are almost dried. but i feel numbness around my nose, below eye n 1 side of the lip where I got herpes affected. I hardly feel anything in those parts of my face as if like i have got local anesthesia. I tried finding if its common to feel numb post herpes but i read numbness is only during the initial stage. I currently don't have pain in that area. Is numbness common? Is my nerves in affected area are damaged? Whom should I consult for this? How serious this post trauma could be?

Yes. Herpes can cause numbness and pain. It can damage your nerve temporarily. It is not a serious problem. Consult Neuro specialist for management of pain.
