Can You Wash Your Face While You Have Chicken Pox?
I have had chicken pox for 3 days and it is on my face the most, can I wash my face using facial soap? Or how good?
Hello, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Chickenpox is a disease caused by infection with the Varicella zoster virus. This infection most commonly affects children, although people of all ages can get this infection. When you have chicken pox, you can still wash your face with soap. But make sure you use a gentle facial soap and don't cause further facial irritation. Avoid using face wash that contains antiseptic / antibacterial, face wash that contains scrubs, and soaps that contain alcohol and its derivatives.
As long as your skin rash is still there, you should avoid going to crowded and crowded places, don't be near small children or people who have low immune systems (elderly people, people with HIV, people on chemotherapy) to avoid transmission because of this disease. very very contagious. When the rash starts to dry out, avoid scratching and peeling the scabs so that scars don't form on the skin.
