Hello Okva,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Need to be clarified, what is exactly the symptoms of chickenpox you are experiencing? Has it been examined and treated by a doctor?


Chicken pox is a viral infection characterized by watery skin rashes that almost spread throughout the body. This disease can be transmitted very easily either through direct or indirect contact with other chickenpox sufferers. As long as the patient's endurance is good, and the disease is handled appropriately, often chickenpox can be cured in 1 to 2 weeks without leaving serious complications. The treatment of chicken pox is characterized by skin rashes that start to break or dry and then form a scab and improvement of other clinical symptoms, such as reduced itching and improved appetite.


Rash due to chicken pox, in addition to breaking easily, also often causes intense itching. If the rash breaks out and is not properly cleaned, a secondary infection can result in pus formation. To prevent this condition, it is advisable for sufferers to always wear clothes that are clean, loose, made from soft, and absorb sweat when suffering from chicken pox. It is also better if the patient's clothes are washed with detergent that contains a softener so it is not rough and makes the patient feel more comfortable. Of course, we are not authorized to recommend you a particular detergent brand. However, you can examine the detergent packaging, whether it contains softener in it, or not. Change clothes that have been used regularly, and do not exchange clothing and other personal items with others. Do not forget, live the treatment as recommended by your doctor, drink plenty of water, rest more regularly, consume a variety of nutritious foods and fruits rich in vitamin C, and always keep yourself clean and your environment so that chicken pox heals faster.


If after the drug runs out your complaint does not also improve, do not hesitate to check back to your doctor or dermatologist to be treated further huh ..


I hope this helps.
