What night if the herpes symptoms were already felt, just to make sure that it was herpes or not gimama?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
There are 2 types of herpes, namely herpes zoster and herpes simplex. Which do you mean? What is shingles?
Herpes zoster is a disease characterized by the appearance of watery rashes in certain parts of the body, usually limited to one side of the body, which can be painful, hot, itchy, and tingling. This condition often appears accompanied by systemic complaints, such as weakness, fatigue, decreased appetite, muscle and joint pain, more sensitivity to light, and so on. Shingles occurs due to the Varicella zoster virus, which previously caused chickenpox to reactivate and travel through the nerve fibers around the brain and spinal cord to the skin. This condition is prone to occur when resistance decreases in people who have previously had chickenpox.
With a doctor's examination, shingles can often be diagnosed simply by observing the skin rash that appears. However, in ordinary people, this is not enough to do. Because, often, the symptoms of shingles can be very similar to the symptoms of other diseases, such as yeast infection, impetigo, folliculitis, chicken pox, contact dermatitis, burns, and so on. Therefore, you should first check with a doctor or skin specialist. In some rare conditions, doctors can also perform special examinations, such as by taking a tissue sample from the skin that has a rash to be examined in the laboratory.
If it is true that your complaint is caused by herpes zoster, then your doctor will generally provide treatment in the form of anti-viral drugs. Several other types of drugs can also be prescribed by doctors according to the complaints you feel. In addition to drug consumption, curing herpes zoster is also determined by the sufferer's immune system. For that, in addition to undergoing treatment from a doctor, you should also get plenty of rest, eat and drink nutritionally, and avoid fatigue to help optimize healing.
Hope it helps ..
