  1. B is the answer and the winners are Nikitin and Adekunbi.
    Details Below:
    As the rash has disappeared and MA is still feeling pain, he has developed
    postherpetic neuralgia. Occurrence of severe pain during the acute phase is
    associated with an increased likelihood that the patient develops postherpetic
    neuralgia.
