Hi there I understand your concern...Some patients with postherpetic neuralgia appear to have abnormal function of unmyelinated nociceptors and sensory loss....Pain and temperature detection systems are hypersensitive to light mechanical stimulation, leading to severe will be there for few months even after resolution of lesions... I would suggest you to consult nearest dermatologist they will do the needful.
