How Is Chickenpox Treatment In Children Aged 22 Months?
My 22-month-old child has chicken pox. Until now it’s been 8 days. Already taken to the health center and given a 60ml afibramol fever reliever and medicine dipipis (which is likely to cough, because there is a cough). Smallpox began to appear around the neck, spread quickly due to frequent frequent friction and dile necks, and now can be said to be evenly distributed in the neck so that the wounds are runny and difficult to heal, aciclovir ointment has been given but it is difficult to dry. Is it due to infection? Ato it’s like that. Please the solution.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Children are one of the age groups that are susceptible to chickenpox due to their relatively weak immune system compared to adults. Chicken pox is caused by a Varicella zoster virus infection that is transmitted from other chickenpox sufferers through inhalation of airway droplets or direct and indirect contact with a rash that appears on the skin. Clinically, chicken pox is characterized by the appearance of a reddish skin rash, which is protruding with fluid, and then can become rusty and dry out by itself forming a scab. The spread of smallpox rash typically starts from the middle of the body (ie the neck, torso, genitals, back) and then to other areas around it (ie the hands and feet). With excellent endurance, of course, coupled with proper treatment from a doctor, chicken pox will generally recover in 1 to 2 weeks. Even so, in some sensitive people, the remaining rashes from chicken pox can also last for a longer time, leaving scars that are blackish, reddish, or vaginal discharge that is difficult to remove.
The condition of your child may occur naturally as part of the healing process of the disease. However, chickenpox healing can last longer because of poor immune system, poor personal hygiene, inadequate nutritional intake, secondary infections in chickenpox rash, improper handling, and so on. For this reason, it is more appropriate for you to have your child re-examined by a doctor, pediatrician, or dermatologist for proper handling according to the conditions. In some rare cases, your doctor may also direct your child to undergo investigations, for example blood tests, allergy tests, skin biopsies, and so on, to rule out other conditions that can cause chickenpox-like symptoms.
For now, the following solutions you can do:
Bathe your child regularly in the morning and evening, use antiseptic soap that is safe for children, do not rub excessive skin of children, especially in areas covered with rashes After bathing, wear on children's clothing that is loose, made from soft, absorb sweat, and also clean. children rest more Do not let the child exchange or personal items, including clothes, towels, spoons, plates, cups, etc. with others Feed your child breast milk, also give him a healthy and nutritious MPASI so that his immune system is maintained Urge the child so as not to squeeze, slurp, or scratch carelessly skin rashes that appear Give the child more to drink Hopefully it helps huh ..
