Hi, @nighthawk50 – welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. You'll note I merged your post with this discussion, "Postherpetic Neuralgia (Shingles) nerve damage around eye, eyebrow, forehead & scalp" so that you could meet other members talking about postherpetic neuralgia.
I had postherpetic neuralgia after shingles myself, and it was tough. I remember wondering if the itching would ever go away.
Please meet @1977lizzy @joanlee @sjsmall5286 @oranbaughn, as well as @johnbishop. I trust these members will have some helpful input for you on postherpetic neuralgia and on the effectiveness of neural ablation for this condition.
