Jenny Jürgens: She has been suffering from shingles for two weeks

After two weeks of shingles, Jenny Jürgens is gradually feeling better. Also because she is doing numerous things to alleviate the disease.

Former “Rote Rosen” star Jenny Jürgens (57) is currently going through difficult times in her adopted home of Mallorca: The daughter of Udo Jürgens (1934-2014) has shingles. In a post, she shows herself with wounds on her face and at the same time gives tips on how to deal with the disease. She is now feeling much better.

The wounds gradually become smaller

“Day 14 of shingles. Today the strong medication ends. Thank God!” reports the former actress, who is now concentrating primarily on her great passion, photography. “They really robbed you of your energy. Painkillers must definitely continue to be taken to reduce the risk of post-herpetic neuralgia. The wounds are slow to heal, but are getting smaller,” writes Jürgens.

“If you had chickenpox as a child, it’s dormant inside you. Varicella zoster herpes,” the 57-year-old continues. “It can break out when you’re stressed or have a weak immune system. And it’s really painful!” After she made her suffering public, she received a lot of messages. “I saw how unknown shingles is in people’s minds. That was the case with me too… until it got me.”

The disease is widespread: on average, it affects one in three people at least once in their life. In addition to the painful skin rash, it can also cause nerve pain and vision and hearing problems. However, you can get vaccinated. The Standing Committee on Vaccination recommends this from the age of 60, but the vaccination is also approved for people over the age of 50.

She recommends aloe vera, cortisone cream and patience

Jenny Jürgens has been forced to deal intensively with shingles in recent days and is now sharing her knowledge with her fans: “Fresh aloe vera (we have enough) and light cortisone cream and patience. Never scratch!” It is a shame that she cannot go out in the sun at the moment, “but you know what it is for.” Now it is important to “give the immune system a boost.” She is doing everything she can to achieve this. She will also be receiving infusions soon.

She also receives support in her recovery from her husband, director David Carreras Solé, whom she thanks: “Without you, I don’t know what it would have been like.”
