In order to evaluate the pain of patients with herpes zoster and to study the analgesic treatment, 100 patients with herpes zoster are enrolled in this study. Patients with herpes zoster are classified and admitted to the hospital using oral descriptive scoring. The pain is assessed on a graded basis, and the visual analog scale is used to assess the pain before and after treatment. It is found that patients with herpes zoster are mainly middle-aged and elderly, and the course of disease is usually 2-3 w. After age grouping studies, there is no significant difference in pain levels between different age groups, and the VRS scores at admission are basically 3-4, showing that the pain caused by herpes zoster is very intense. After treatment, the VAS scores of patients before and after treatment are statistically found to greatly improve the pain of the patients, and to avoid the patient’ s normal life due to pain.
