How Long Does The Herpes In The Eye Heal And Does The Scar Disappear?
What are the causes that cause us to get herpes in the eyes? and how long does it take to be able to properly recover from herpes? if it is difficult to heal in the eye area? if it can heal, is it true that the scars cannot heal?
Hello Nintia, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Shingles is a disease caused by reactivation of the Varicella zoster virus. This virus is the same virus that causes chickenpox. This virus is a virus that will not disappear from a human body for life. This virus will stay in the innervation and can recur for a time when the body's immune system is decreasing / weakening. The recurrence of this virus can occur anywhere following nerve dermatomes, including growing on the face around the eyes. There are no specific factors that cause this virus to be activated in certain nerve dermatomes (it just happens randomly).
Shingles that grow around the eyes are one indication for a doctor's examination and administration of antiviral drugs. You should immediately check yourself to a dermatologist, or you can also see an eye doctor if you experience vision problems in eyes affected with herpes. If you experience vision problems, do not delay going to the eye doctor. The appearance of herpes around the eyes can cause complications in the form of eye damage and permanent visual impairment if not treated properly.
Shingles rash on the skin basically disappears if treated properly (kept dry and clean, not scratched). However, as mentioned above, shingles that grow around the eyes require more intensive care because they can cause complications in the eye. Therefore you must immediately check yourself to the doctor and do not delay the examination.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
