Abstract

帯状疱疹後神経痛が経験的に温めることで改善することをヒントに,体質的に冷えを伴う帯状疱疹後神経痛の患者に漢方の代表的温剤である桂枝,附子を含む方剤で治療した。方剤としては煎剤で桂枝加附子湯加減,エキス剤で八味地黄丸を使用した。今回対象とした症例は帯状疱疹の皮疹が消失ないし潰瘍が上皮化したのちに疼痛を生じた8例で,高齢者,女性が多く,全例手足の冷感を強く訴えた。また東洋医学的診察では脈診で全例が沈,細,弱であり腎虚証を呈していた。今回行った温剤による漢方治療は,冷感との関連がつよい帯状疱疹に伴う疼痛に対して有効な治療法の一つと考えた。

We have numerous experiences that the symptoms of patients suffering from herpes-zoster associated pain can be improved by warming the whole body or by warming the specific painful body part. This is achieved by taking a warm bath or by attaching pocket body warmers. In present study a total of 8 patients, 3 males and 5 females, suffering from herpes-zoster associated pain (neuralgia) were treated with Oriental herbal medicines. Keisi-bushi-to herbs and Hachimi-jio-gan extract granules were given orally, from 2∼3 times a day. Two out of three patients, treated with keisi-bushi-to, demonstrated an improvement in their symptoms. Four of the five patients treated with Hachimi-jio-gan experienced pain relief. Our study disclosed that herpes-zoster associated pain can very well be treated with Oriental herbal medicines.
