Chickenpox Medicine For Children Aged 4 Years?
Good night, I want to ask for this bevalex® cream ointment. Can it make chickenpox or not, for children aged 4-5 years old, thank you in advance
Chicken pox is a contagious disease caused by a viral infection. Chickenpox can cause complaints of red rash, watery rash, fever, flu-like symptoms, then the rash dries up and becomes a scab that can come off on its own.
Doctors generally need to do a history and physical examination to diagnose chickenpox. Chicken pox can heal on its own in 1-2 weeks. However, to speed up healing and also prevent rashes from spreading throughout the body, doctors can provide further treatment with oral antivirals, topical antiviral / antiviral ointments, antihstamines when itching, and fever-lowering when fever.
The ointments you mentioned contain corticosteroids and antibiotics. You should not apply any ointments other than ointments from the doctor. The ointment used in chickenpox is an antiviral ointment. If there is no ointment you can use itching powder, but only on the rash that is still intact. talc should not be used on pimples that have cracked.
We recommend that you take your child to the doctor first so that they can be examined and given more appropriate treatment. Meanwhile you can do the following tips:
Give the child loose and comfortable clothes
Children keep showering, if they have a fever, they can use warm water
Take care not to break the nodule
Cold compress to reduce itching
There are no dietary restrictions as long as the child is not allergic
Drink a lot of water
Let the child rest
For the time being, try to keep the child at home until the nodules dry
Hope this helps,
