Can Broken Chicken Pox Spots Become Wider?
Hello, I am 15 years old and this is the second time I have had chicken pox. I have been exposed to chicken pox before but why do I have it again now? In addition, I want to ask whether the chicken pox pox that accidentally erupts due to sleep cramps will spread everywhere? Then can the use of young corn be done while smallpox is still in the form of water nodules? Thank you for the long question
Hello. Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Chickenpox is an infectious disease caused by the varicella-zoster virus. Chickenpox often occurs in children under 15 years, but can also occur in adults. Chicken pox is very contagious from one person to another through the air. The typical symptom that occurs in patients with chicken pox is an itchy red rash that will later develop into fluid-filled nodules. In these nodules the varicella-zoster virus collects, so that if the nodules break, transmission will be easier. In addition to nodules, other symptoms that usually appear include fever, headache, fatigue, and decreased appetite.
If someone has had chickenpox, the virus usually remains in the body, so that person will usually not experience chickenpox again. However, the virus that persists in the body can cause shingles as an adult. The symptoms of shingles are similar to chickenpox. However, nodules do not occur in the whole body, but only in one particular body region and occur on one side of the body only. If these nodules break, other people can get the varicella-zoster virus and get chickenpox. Another difference between shingles and chickenpox is the presence of painful or burning sensations in patients with shingles. Pain that is felt can be different for each person, it can be in the form of mild to very severe pain. Shingles usually occurs when a person's body defenses are weak, for example when stressed or lacking rest. Shingles can cause various complications. The most common complication is post-herpes pain. In this complication, the sensation of pain remains felt even though the pimple on the skin has disappeared.
To find out if what you are experiencing right now is chickenpox or shingles, you should see a doctor, especially a dermatologist. Your doctor will check the condition of your skin, then give medicines to suppress the amount of virus and reduce pain that may appear. Do not break the nodules found on the skin. Besides infectious, nodules that are broken can also leave scars that are difficult to remove. So far, the use of young corn has not been proven to overcome the problem of chickenpox or shingles. It's best to avoid rubbing anything on the pimple because it can cause a bacterial infection in the pimple.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
