    Hi:

    I know all about shingles as I have looked it all up on the internet and my father has gotten them twice. This is over 3 years now that he has that and PHN. The PHN people get after the shingles. It's a type of nerve damage.

    What kind of shots does a dermatologist give you for nerve damage. I never knew anything would work.

    My father has been on Lidocaine patches and some other kind of morphine patches and he's the nerves cut twice in surgery but nothing is working. He asked the doctor about morphine pump but the doctor didn't really want to do that because my father gets very sick with alot of that type of medicine in him and ends up in the hospital.

    He's been on Neurontin and all different kinds of pain pills with nothing.

    Please tell me about these shots. The only other thing that he could do is get this kind of nerve block shot which he has to sign papers because he could end up in a coma.
