Hi there,
When pain is present for months to years after developing shingles it is called post herpetic neuralgia. In this condition there is shooting or tingling pain in a particular area. You will need strong pain medications. These may include capsaicin cream. In this there is a patch that delivers lidocaine, or strong oral pain medicines such as opiates. Few drugs used for depression or seizures are also helpful in treating PHN, but should be used only after consulting a doctor. Do rule out other possibilities of pain below right rib cage like gallstones, liver damage, Crohn’s disease, ulcers, injuries, costochondritis, and liver cancer etc.Seek medical help. Keep me posted.
Best wishes and take care!
