Causes And Ways To Overcome Dompo Disease?
What is the cause for dompo disease? as well as for prevention or treatment of gmn? thank you
Hello Stephanus Setyo Prabowo, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Dompo disease or herpes zoster is caused by the vision of Varicella zoster recurrence / relapse after first chickenpox infection (recurrence is generally due to the condition of the immune system down and old age). Shingles causes painful, water-filled resilience in one area on one side of the body, these resilience will break into crusty sores (if exposed to secondary infections by bacteria, there can be visible pus), then slowly disappears. Symptoms are generally accompanied by fever, headache, burning / tingling / pain when touched (nerve pain), where this pain can persist even after the blistering has disappeared. Shingles in the eye and ear area must be treated immediately because it threatens vision and hearing.
Immediately see a doctor if you experience shingles. The doctor will conduct a question-answer and examination, then if there is an indication the doctor will give anti-viral medication, antiviral ointment, fever-lowering, and if judged there are indications of giving a pain reliever (for example gabapentin) which can only be obtained by a doctor's prescription.
The treatments that can be done at home are: if the blisters are still wet, compress the blisters with gauze moistened with normal saline (NaCl) and povidone iodine as an antiseptic for 15 minutes, as much as 4-5 times a day. This aims to help the absorption of liquid blisters so that the blisters dry out quickly.
Keep in mind that the Varisella virus will be present in the human body for life. The virus is dormant / rests on nerves in the spine (dorsal root ganglia), and will relapse causing symptoms when the immune condition is dropping and a greater risk is experienced in older people> 50 years. The prevention is by consuming daily vitamin C supplements, regular exercise, drinking enough water (at least 2 liters per day), and getting enough rest (sleeping 6-8 hours a day).
All of our suggestions and answers, hopefully useful, good afternoon.
