Hello Mr. Agus, thank you for asking.
Fire pox or snake pox in medical terms is shingles. This disease is an infectious disease caused by the herpes zooster virus. The virus is the same virus that causes chickenpox. In people affected by chickenpox, after recovering some of the virus will be silent (dormant) in the nerves. When a person's immunity decreases, the virus can reactivate and cause shingles. Shingles attacks only one area of the body which is innervated by the nerves inhabited by the virus. Unlike chickenpox, where chickenpox will attack all parts of the body.
Shingles can last 1-2 weeks. Signs of skin disorders in the form of blisters with a reddish basis. Symptoms include general symptoms such as fever, headache, weakness, and pain such as burning or puncture in the herpes area. This burning sensation is felt by most shingles sufferers. This disease is actually not dangerous and can heal itself. Treatment is intended to reduce the division of the virus and overcome the symptoms that arise.
Blisters on the skin should not be broken to prevent blisters from being infected with bacteria. The blisters will dry themselves after a few days. Keep taking medicine from your doctor as recommended. It is important to take medicine thoroughly to reduce the risk of post herpes accompaniment pain. This accompaniment pain feels the same as acute herpes pain, but can last for months.
In the meantime, take care of personal hygiene, do not leave bathing 2 times a day. Be careful when addressing the sick part, you should just pat it. Eat foods high in protein to help regenerate cells. If the drug causes an allergic reaction in the form of biduran, redness accompanied by itching, shortness of breath, then immediately stop the drug and consult a doctor.
Such information from me, hopefully helped. Regards.
