Shingles is often a painful skin condition. It takes the form of a skin rash, characterized by red blotches on the skin. In some ways, it is similar to chickenpox, except shingles tends to occur in localized areas rather than on the entire body. In addition to a skin rash, symptoms of shingles often include fever, headaches, muscle pain, nausea, and malaise (general discomfort).
Since shingles is caused by the herpes zoster virus, doctors often opt to prescribe an antiviral medication as a treatment for shingles. However, some patients with the condition may prefer to treat shingles in a more natural way with home remedies or homeopathic medicines. One such medicine is Emuaid.
Emuaid for Shingles
Emuaid is a topical (applied to the skin) ointment. It is classed as homeopathic—or alternative—medicine, which relies on natural ingredients rather than ones that are produced in a lab. Emuaid claims that its natural ingredients work to soothe irritation and calm inflammation caused by a number of skin conditions. Although there is some debate about whether homeopathic medicine is effective, Emuaid products are manufactured in an FDA-registered homeopathic drug facility. Click here to read more about Emuaid.
According to the medicine’s website, the natural bio-active ingredients include medical-grade HPUS Argentum Metallicum, as well as tea tree oil and bacillus ferment (a probiotic). Emuaid also contains emu oil, which the medicine’s website claims is capable of penetrating the skin to deliver the medicine effectively in addition to having moisturizing and rejuvenating effects. The product does not contain any chemicals, artificial preservatives, fragrance, or alcohol.
Emuaid’s website claims that Emuaid is completely safe as it contains no chemicals or irritants. This allegedly means that Emuaid has no side effects, nor does it conflict with any other medication. Emuaid is available over-the-counter in over 1000 authorized retailers and can also be ordered off its website. Click here to peruse through the frequently asked questions about Emuaid.
Emuaid’s disclaimer notes that the United States Food and Drug Administration has not verified the statements made by Emuaid. In addition, homeopathic medicine is not backed by conventional scientific evidence. Results in patients may vary, and the medication’s website does not tout the product as a cure for any medical condition. Click here to read more about homeopathy. While Emuaid claims that it can provide relief from discomfort caused by skin conditions, sufferers of shingles and other skin ailments should initially visit a doctor for treatment before trying Emuaid.
