What is the best treatment for the acute pain of herpes zoster? Bottom line: In patients experiencing acute pain associated with herpes zoster, known effective treatments for reducing pain are the combined use of antivirals and corticosteroids and the combined use of antivirals and controlled-release oxycodone (SOR: B, RCTs). It is unknown if one combination is better than the other.
