Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Your complaint may be a complication of chickenpox, such as:
1. Secondary bacterial infection. Complications occur in someone who has low endurance, such as children, the elderly, has chronic illness and HIV. Secondary bacterial infectious diseases that can attack the skin, called cellulitis. Characterized by a red rash on the skin.
2. Drug allergic reaction.
3. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Complications occur due to a blockage in the veins in the diseased hand veins. Blockages can be related to chickenpox, but they may not.
You should immediately consult an internist. The doctor will conduct a medical interview, physical examination and supporting examinations as needed, such as a complete blood test with LEDs (blood sedimentation rate) and ultrasound of the diseased arm's blood vessels. The doctor will then provide treatment according to the cause of your illness.
Meanwhile, you can position your arms up or higher than the heart to reduce pain and facilitate venous return. You can also warmly compress the affected part. Eat nutritious foods to increase endurance, yes.
Thus hopefully useful.
