If you currently have herpes and this has been confirmed by your family doctor or your skin specialist, you can continue treatment and medication according to the results of the examination and recommendations from your doctor. By following your doctor's directions and plans, it is hoped that these complaints will soon improve and not interfere with your activities.
Patients with herpes complaints, also known as shingles or in the lay environment are also called snake pox or chicken pox because it can cause comorbid complaints in the form of complaints of pain or burning or heat in the area of herpes rash (the name of herpes can also be used for cases of herpes simplex or herpes is transmitted through risky sex, so identification by a doctor is needed to find out herpes). In addition, the herpes rash gives a picture such as the irregular curve of the snake, which usually covers one side of the body or the rash does not cross the patient's body growth. Other complaints are also often described in the form of bubbles filled with fluid, reddish skin, and itching that sometimes irritates. If bubbles or vesicles burst, there is a risk of increasing bacterial contamination. In addition, if the vesicles break, the skin looks moist and wet in the area.
Therefore, if you still feel the complaint of herpes, all of the above complaints often bother you, and if vesicles appear, and you try to prevent friction with other objects, then you can close the herpes rash with sterile gauze, so this can protect against friction, irritation, or rupture of vesicles and prevent complications from rupture of the vesicles. After you close, you can glue the gauze with tape. Close as needed, no need to press too tightly, the important point is not to rub together and you are comfortable and protected.
If you feel complaints of itching, sweating, you can use a small towel to reduce the amount of excessive sweating when on the move, do sweat drying gently or simply pressed. However, keep this towel so that it is not used by other healthy people around you. Drugs given by doctors, such as drugs to reduce complaints of itching and medication for herpes itself, you should be able to continue according to the doctor's direction. With good care, it is expected that in 7-14 days, these complaints can get better soon. after the rash is dry, avoid sloughing off a dry surface. Let the dry surface of the healing herpes peel off by itself, so you can simply cleanse the cleansing of this clean skin, without the risk of injuring the skin which may not have perfect healing.
However, if you are in doubt, then discuss with your doctor for treatment of herpes at home. Your doctor will give directions and instructions for you to treat herpes rashes until they are well.
For now, the following will help your recovery period, such as:
1. avoid physical fatigue
