The Shingles Market report provides an edge while developing business strategies, by understanding trends shaping and driving the 7MM Shingles market.
Shingles, also known as herpes zoster (HZ), is a viral infection caused by the chickenpox virus, varicella-zoster virus (VZV). Herpes zoster results from activation of the virus, which in many instances has remained latent for years following a primary chickenpox infection. Once active, the virus travels along a nerve to the skin and causes a rash.

Early symptoms of shingles may include fever and general weakness. During the 2 or 3 days before shingles development, most people have pain, a tingling sensation, or itching in a strip of skin (a dermatome) on one side of the body. Clusters of small, fluid-filled blisters surrounded by a small red area then develop on the strip of skin. Typically, the blisters occur only on the limited area of skin supplied by the infected nerve fibers. They are most common on the torso and face, but they can occur elsewhere as well. In rare cases, the rash appears on the lower body. Though, Shingles may develop at any age but is most common after age 50. The chance of developing shingles increases as people age.
Shingles Treatment Market
Shingrix vaccine has been approved by the US FDA to prevent shingles and is recommended for adults aged 50 years and older. Other than this vaccine, Shingles treatments include several antiviral drugs such as famciclovir or valacyclovir. These drugs do not cure the disease, but they can help relieve shingles symptoms and shorten their duration. Pain–reliving drugs, anti-inflammation drugs, narcotic medications and others are also prescribed for treatment of the symptoms.
Shingles Market: Report
Treatment for Shingles must be initiated by a dermatologist or other health-care provider within 3 days of getting the rash. Ideally, if the treatment is initiated within 3 days, it can prevent possible complications, such as long-lasting nerve pain. However, receiving treatment after 3 days still has benefits.
Shingles Market Disease
Antiviral medication and vaccinations are often the most effective shingles treatments, according to the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases. In terms of vaccines, Zost avax and Shingrix are the available for shingles while Famciclovir (Famvir) and valacyclovir (Valtrex) are FDA approved drugs for shingles and acyclovir (Sitavig, Zovirax) is also used sometimes. These drugs do not cure the disease since there is no cure for this indication, but they can help relieve shingles symptoms and shorten their duration. Additionally, pain medicines may help relieve the pain caused by shingles.
Shingles Market Insights
Shingrix is a new shingles vaccine developed by GlaxoSmithKline and was approved by the US FDA in 2017. It contains inactivated varicella-zoster viral particles, which aids the body’s production of more antibodies that are necessary to fight the virus with a stronger immune system response. As an inactive vaccine, it may be administered to patients with compromised immune systems. It reduces the risk of getting shingles by more than 90% and it’s effective for five years. Two doses are required for Shingrix to be effective. The second dose should be injected within two to six months of the first dose. Both doses are injected into the muscle. It is recommended for patients who are at least 50 years old. Normal side effects include muscle pain, tiredness, fever, and gastrointestinalsymptoms.
