Chicken Pox That Has Dried Whether It Will Loose Itself?
Doc, I have had chicken pox for 5 days in the area where the face has dried, will it peel off the chicken pox that has dried out? I don’t need to peel it off even though it’s dry?

Hello Lilis ...
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com, I try to help answer yes ...
Chickenpox or in medical language also called varicella, is a disease caused by the varicella zooster virus, usually in addition to being characterized by reddish rash accompanied by spots that contain very itchy fluid throughout the body, some other complaints are:
- throat pain
- Dizzy and weak
In diagnosing varicella, it must be done by physical examination. The duration of healing in varicella patients depends on the level of immunity of a person, several things that can be done to reduce complaints, namely:
- Inadequate drinking water needs to avoid dehydration
- Try not to scratch the area of rash or spots of liquid because eating dirty fingers will cause infection
- keep showering. You can take a shower using warm water and dry it with a towel with a light pat
- Get enough rest and take medicine according to doctor's advice.
At the beginning of symptoms, usually a reddish rash shaped like a protruding spot and then looks like filled with liquid and then broken and dry like forming a crust, when crust or smallpox scars form, it will disappear by itself, the wounds caused by smallpox will continue to regenerate to form new tissue, but if the process is inhibited as it exfoliates on its own, it will leave a scar. In the process of healing even when smallpox sores are dry, it will definitely feel very uncomfortable, but try not to scratch the area or try to remove the chicken pox scars. You can gently pat the smallpox scar area that feels itchy, so that itching complaints decrease, you can also compress the chickenpox scar area with warm water to reduce the itching caused.
In situations where the corona virus is spreading rapidly, if not accompanied by needs and urgency you should stay at home, or take care of yourself so that you are not exposed to the virus, if there are complaints such as sore throat that gets worse for more than 2 weeks, accompanied by fever more than 38 degrees Celsius, coughs, colds that do not heal until there is a feeling of tightness or difficulty breathing, even though you have tried to take medication, then you should check yourself to the doctor, for further examination.
Thus my answer, hopefully it helps
