Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Broadly speaking, there are 2 types of herpes, namely shingles and herpes simplex. Shingles is a disease caused by reactivation of the varicella-zoster virus after the first infection which usually manifests as varicella (chickenpox) disease in the skin and mucous membranes (mucosa). The herpes simplex is a disease caused by infection with herpes simplex virus (HSV) type I or II, resulting in symptoms in the form of flaking resemblies on a reddish basis on the skin, genitals, and oral mucosa.
Symptoms of shingles usually begin with fever, headache, weakness, muscle and aching bones. Next, there are resilient resembling groups on the basis of redness accompanied by pain on one side of the body. The spread of this rash follows the pattern of innervation of the skin (dermatomes). Based on the location of the appearance of skin lesions that you experience in the chest to the right back, the complaint you made may point to suspicion of the symptoms of shingles. However, this still needs to be ascertained through direct examination by a doctor or specialist skin and genitals. Your doctor may give you antiviral drugs and pain medications.
If the condition that you are experiencing is shingles, you can still take a bath as usual. There are no restrictions to be exposed to water. In fact, you still need to bathe regularly 2 times a day so that personal hygiene is maintained. As a suggestion, you are also advised to take adequate rest, avoid using tight clothing, and not deliberately break the resilient that appears.
