Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
I agree with you actually
I think that a course of antiviral treatment is required in your case and I would have used antiviral medications.
For the pain, if it is mild you can use over-the-counter pain medications like ibuprofen and if severe neuropathic pain medications like pregabalin, duloxetine, gabapentin may be used.
Are you with me?
