To explore the effect of personalized nursing in patients with herpes zoster. A total of 90 patients with herpes zoster admitted to our hospital from July 2023 to December 2023 were randomly divided into observation group (n=45) and control group (n=45). The control group received western medicine treatment and routine nursing, and the observation group was combined with personalized nursing on the basis of the control group, and the pain and emotional state of the two groups were compared. Before nursing, there was no significant difference between the observation group and the control group, P > 0.05. After nursing, there was significant difference between the observation group and the control group (P < 0.05). The time of edema regression, pain disappearance and skin healing in the observation group were shorter than those in the control group, with significant differences (P<0.05). After 3 months of treatment, the incidence of neuralgia in the observation group was significantly lower than that in the control group, with significant differences (P<0.05). This study shows that the introduction of personalized nursing program in the nursing of elderly patients with herpes zoster can significantly improve the pain and emotional state of patients, accelerate the process of edema regression, pain relief and skin healing, compared with only western medicine treatment and conventional nursing. In addition, personalized care can also effectively reduce the incidence of neuralgia after 3 months of treatment. These results suggest that personalized care can not only improve patient comfort and quality of life, but also provide a more effective care strategy for elderly patients with shingles. Therefore, it is recommended to widely adopt personalized nursing programs in the care of elderly patients with shingles in order to promote the overall recovery of patients and improve the therapeutic effect.
