Drugs injected intradermally spread slowly into the underlying tissues and produce a drug-saving effect. The Italian society of mesotherapy suggested that intradermal therapy obtains analgesic effect on localized pain, with a lower risk of systemic drug interactions. We report a case of post-herpetic pain successfully treated by this technique. This case confirms that the intradermal administration technique (mesotherapy), which is based on the pathophysiology of the disorder, according to the recommendations, can contribute to the management of patients who do not tolerate standard therapies.
