Where are the acupuncture points involved in post herpetic neuralgia of the right scalp and forehead?

You are describing the region in the head that, according to the Meridian theory, falls in the realm of the gall bladder. Since herpetic outbreaks often involve the liver, it is possible to work with the liver and gall bladder meridian points to reduce the pain and clear those channels. For more specific information, contact a licensed practitioner.

This depends on the person. Everyone's treatment is unique.

Acupuncture has both local effects on a specific afflicted area where needles can be placed, as well as systemic effects that influence the whole body by the placement of needles in apparently unrelated areas far away from the afflicted area. A balanced treatment for post herpetic neuralgia would include major points selected around the lesion, "surround the dragon" points encircling the area of most discomfort, as well as general immune boosting and body balancing points on the trunk, arms and legs. The choice of points is also influenced by the constitutional character of a patient's body, as well as the particulars of what's happening with the health concern.
