Affected By Smallpox And Measles At The Age Of 25 Years.?
Night. Today I was diagnosed with measles by a doctor after around last October with smallpox. I am almost 25 years old, but only when I grow up with smallpox and measles. Are there any diseases other than smallpox and measles which should attack as children but if they have never been infected they will develop them as adults? Then what should I avoid doing while I have measles? thanks.
Hello Luna, thanks for asking.
Some infectious diseases such as chickenpox and measles are more often experienced by children. However, this does not mean that the two diseases cannot affect adults. Basically, most infectious diseases can affect both adults and children. Chances are you didn't get exposure when you were young, or your immune system is good, so you don't experience both diseases.
Some infectious diseases such as parotitis (mumps) and scarlet fever, are more easily occur in children. However, basically these diseases can affect all ages, especially if adults are often in contact with children.
Diseases such as smallpox and measles can heal itself as long as your immune system is good enough. Get plenty of rest, drink lots of water, increase your intake of protein, vegetables, and fruit. Avoid contact with other people, especially contact with babies, children, the elderly, pregnant women, and people with chronic diseases. This is to prevent you from transmitting disease to them. These groups of people, may have a more severe disease course, if infected. You can also take precautions to avoid getting infected with it, avoid close contact with an infected person, wear a mask, wash your hands frequently, and do not often touch your face with dirty hands. Routine exercise 3-5 times a week can increase your immune power.
Hopefully this information can add to your knowledge. Regards.
