Chickenpox Treatment At The Age Of 25 Years?
Hello., On the 22nd I realized there were only 5 nodules filled with water in my body, then I immediately went to the doctor to check for itching, and it turned out that I had chicken pox. 10mg and vitamins .. After the ointment was gone and my pox increased a lot on this day on the 25th I returned to the doctor, but the drugs given were different, I got ibmuprofen 400mg, ctm 10mg, and 5mg of ointment aciclovir and given antiviral aciclovir tablet 400mg for 5 hours. once and bought outside the clinic … I wonder why medicine can change? And why the new aciclovir tablet was given after the second visit? Even though I visited the clinic with the same attending doctor, with the same complaints from the beginning … But the doctor’s explanation said that aciclovir antivirus would not work if the smallpox had passed the 2-day limit … Which means it would be useless it would not reduce symptoms … I confused just say it’s useless why on the first day I visited kedokterny not given .. Please enlighten me because I’m confused whether this will recover soon if you replace the drug .. Thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically the drugs Paracetamol (given at the first visit) and Ibuprofen (given at the second visit) have more or less the same function, which is to reduce the discomfort and fever that usually appears accompanying chicken pox. Cetirizine (which was given at the first visit) and CTM (which was given at the second visit) also had more or less the same function, namely to reduce itching in chickenpox lesions. Drugs that do have meaning if given on the first day are oral Acyclovir (oral medication). This drug if given in the first 24 hours since the emergence of chickenpox lesions can indeed help shorten the duration of the disease and also reduce the risk of disease complications, therefore it is true that you say, the effectiveness of the drug is already reduced when given on the 3rd day.
Basically, the chickenpox virus infection can also heal by itself even though no medicine is given. Healing usually occurs in 5-10 days. If on this 3rd day your lesions multiply, it does occur naturally and is indeed part of the course of this disease. Even if the drug is given from day one, it is very likely that your lesions will multiply by day 3 (but the possibility of chickenpox lesions can disappear faster). You should not worry too much because most people who experience this pain will recover by themselves without any complications. When you see a lesion growing inside your eyes or on your genitals, the lesion appears to have a secondary infection by bacteria (becomes redder, aches, ejects), you experience severe dizziness, disorientation, shortness of breath, tremor, impaired muscle coordination, severe cough, vomiting, neck stiffness, and high fever, go to the hospital immediately.
Some things you can do right now:
Avoid going to public places or crowded places until your chickenpox lesions completely dry out
Avoid scratching or picking up your chickenpox lesions so as not to cause secondary infections and scars later
You can compress the lesion with cold water compresses to help reduce itching
You can also take a bath with water mixed with baking soda or rub the lesion on the skin with lotion containing calamine to help reduce itching.
