Causes And Transmission Of Chickenpox?
hello, I want to ask … chronologically my 2-year-old son is playing outside the house and accompanying him … well at that time there was a neighbor’s child who approached my child … after a long time I knew the child was sick with smallpox … what what I have to do to prevent smallpox transmission is because my child has already been brought up … the smallpox disease is really contagious … first, before that …
Hello, thanks for the question.
Chickenpox is a skin disease caused by the virus Varicella zoster, which is transmitted through the air. Transmission is indeed very quick and easy, it can be through saliva or sputum splashes in the air, or can be by direct contact with saliva, sputum, or fluid from a rash on the skin. Symptoms of this disease can be a reddish rash, filled with fluid, itching throughout the body and can be accompanied by fever. This disease is experienced by many children, because the immune system of children is still not perfect so that transmission can be easier, but that does not mean this disease can not affect adults. This disease can occur at any age. In addition to children, people with weak immune systems, such as those who take immune system-suppressing drugs, people with chemotherapy, people with HIV infection, etc. are also at risk for contracting this disease and can develop to become more severe. Chicken pox without other complications is generally harmless and can heal by itself, the duration of healing depends on the immune system of each individual. Therefore, if there is contact with people with chickenpox, it is better to maintain the health of the child so that the body's immune system is always good, by providing food according to its age, eating healthy and nutritiously balanced foods, consisting of carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, and minerals, avoid contact with sick toddlers, and if complaints arise that lead to chickenpox should immediately consult a pediatrician to be examined and given appropriate treatment. The method for preventing chickenpox which is currently developing is by chickenpox vaccination. But before vaccination, you should consult your doctor first.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
