Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The results of an examination from a doctor / health center that states you have chickenpox infection indicates the varicella zoster virus that enters your body, causing comorbid complaints that might bother you. Patients with chickenpox can be known directly from complaints made or from direct examinations conducted by doctors, these complaints can be:
1. a skin rash in the form of a blister that contains fluid and is widespread in the body
4. sore throat
6. red eyes
These complaints occur a few days after the virus enters the body or are infected with an infectious patient who has chickenpox as well. This infection is self-limited or will heal and heal itself in a span of about 2 weeks. By increasing endurance and stamina, the recovery process from chicken pox can work well. However, sometimes, in this recovery process, patients feel uncomfortable or experience other comorbid complaints that slow down the healing process, so that it is necessary to have direct examination and treatment by your family doctor or dermatologist.
If the initial step of consultation and treatment to the doctor is done early, the treatment process will help shorten the recovery process, and usually patients will feel better after day 5 or day 7 of treatment. So if you currently have received treatment, but this complaint is still disturbing, this might be caused by several things:
1. the recovery process is still in the acute phase, or the complaint is still running in less than 1 week
2. lack of sleep
3. Inadequate balanced healthy and nutritious foods, such as vegetables, fruit, protein, carbohydrates and fluids
4. smoking or alcohol
5. medicine is not routinely taken
Some of the above can slow down the recovery process that you are living or you still need some more time to recover, so you can wait for the next 2-3 days (if the drug has not been exhausted) or until the 7th day of treatment.
However, if the medication you are getting is out and this complaint is still disturbing, you should control it back to your family doctor / puskesma or to your dermatologist. Bring the medicine you previously received and tell the treatment process that you have done at home, so that the doctor will carry out further evaluation related to the recovery process that you are currently undergoing. Your doctor can continue treatment or provide antiviral treatment to help this recovery process, so your complaints can get better soon.
