Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
There are 2 types of Herpes, namely Herpes zoster and Herpes simplex. The more common that appears on the neck and lips area is shingles, also known as shingles.
Herpes zoster occurs not related to masturbation habits. This disease arises due to reactivation of the Varicella zoster virus in nerve fibers close to the brain and spinal cord which manifests to the skin. Varicella zoster virus itself is a virus that causes chickenpox (varicella). After recovering, people with chickenpox can experience reactivation in the form of shingles, which is when their immune system decreases, for example due to fatigue, nutritional problems, taking immune system suppressant drugs, or suffering from certain diseases, for example diabetes, HIV, and so on.
Symptoms of Shingles can be characterized by the appearance of watery rashes on the skin that are painful, itchy, and often combine to form larger lumps. This lump appears only on one side of the body limited to the affected nerve fibers only. In addition, sufferers will experience excessive sensitivity to light, weakness, fatigue, headache pain, decreased appetite, and so on.
It is not impossible, herpes zoster that has recovered appears again in other parts of the body. This condition is generally experienced by those who have problems with their immune system. If according to the doctor's diagnosis that you are experiencing at this time is Herpes zoster, then treatment is done by administering antivirals, because the cause of Herpes zoster is a virus. Antibiotics are not needed in people with Herpes zoster, unless there are signs of secondary infection that refer to bacterial infection.
More specifically, you should consult directly with the doctor who treats you regarding the best treatment for dealing with your complaint. With good handling, generally Herpes zoster will get better within 1 to 2 weeks. However, sometimes the pain caused by this infection can last for a longer time.
In the meantime, in order for the healing process to run more optimally, here are the things you should do:
Always keep yourself clean, namely by bathing regularly, wearing clean clothes, and not handling Herpes rashes with dirty hands
Avoid giving drugs or any treatment for Herpes rashes, unless it is recommended directly by a doctor
Increase endurance, namely by getting enough rest, eating nutritious foods, drinking lots of water, and exercising diligently
Stay away from masturbation habits. Although not directly related to Herpes zoster, excessive masturbation can cause irritation of the reproductive organs, shrinkage of the forebrain, sexual dysfunction, to impotence.
Hope this helps ..
