Can Herpes Cause Pain Such As Being Twisted And Pinched?
I want to ask about whether a skin disease such as herpes can cause pain such as being twisted or like being pinched in the stomach
Hello Anna, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Herpes, especially shingles (snake pox) on the skin can indeed cause complaints such as pain, burning, prickling, aching, or like being pinched on the area where the herpes sores are present. This can occur due to an inflammatory process that occurs in the local nerve due to herpess virus infection.
However, the pain that can be felt is very dependent on the location of the wound and nerves that are disturbed, if not in the abdominal area, then the complaint will not appear in the abdominal area, especially the feeling of twisting in the stomach.
If indeed you do not have herpes sores in the abdominal area, then most likely the pain in your stomach is caused by other conditions such as infection / irritation of the digestive tract, stomach acid disease, or constipation.
Therefore, you should consult these complaints further to the doctor directly to determine the causes and therapies that should be given. In the meantime, if the pain is felt to bother you, you can try taking drugs such as paracetamol or ibuprofen to help reduce complaints with the dosage according to the package.
I hope this helps.
