okter. I am Irena, I am 23 years old and have 2 children. Now I have smallpox, but also since I had chickenpox I have pain in the pit of my stomach when I eat or drink. After that, it felt like something was stuck in the throat. Why is that? What are the effects of smallpox? Or is it not related? For the medicine for smallpox, I was given acyclovir tablets by the midwife. Please answer yes, thanks in advance

Dear Irene,


Chickenpox is caused by the varicella zoster virus which generally manifests in the form of complaints on the skin in the form of spots on the skin all over the body and is accompanied by general symptoms such as fever, decreased appetite, and fatigue. However, in its manifestations, chickenpox rarely causes heartburn. Heartburn itself is mostly caused by gastric complaints which can be caused by either stomach ulcers, psychological complaints, or gastrointestinal infections. To reduce these gastric complaints, it's a good idea to start living a stomach-friendly lifestyle such as:

Avoid consuming spicy or coconut milk
Avoid consuming caffeine like coffee
good psychological stress management
regular diet
reduce the consumption of herbs or anti-pain drugs without a doctor's indication

It is recommended not to lie down for at least 2 hours after eating to prevent stomach acid from rising up into the throat and irritating the solar plexus area to cause pain. As for if the condition persists, do not hesitate to check your condition directly with the doctor. Here we attach an article about heartburn. May be useful.
