How To Cure Herpes In The Mouth?
Hello doctor, I want to ask whether the symptoms of harpes on the lips is one of them, feels like tingling in the infected mouth area, and many more as I have read in the doctor’s article earlier, is it really not treatable and will it be fatal?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Shingles (or often called shingles by ordinary people) is caused by the active return of the Varicella zoster virus which previously caused chickenpox. This virus was previously dormant near the central nervous system. When the patient's immune system decreases, this virus can reactivate, so that it passes through nerve fibers to the skin. This condition can cause the skin to feel burning, heat, pain, aches, tingling, itching, and a characteristic rash that appears runny, congested, and may rupture and form a scab. This herpes rash, typically, will gather on one side of the body which is supplied by certain nerve fibers. Therefore, if the affected area is the lips, herpes rashes very rarely appear in other areas of the body.
Your symptoms can be an early sign of shingles. However, it could also, these symptoms actually arise due to other triggers, such as lack of neurotropic vitamins or minerals, trigeminal neuralgia, Bell's palsy, other skin infections (for example impetigo, cutaneous candidiasis), irritant contact dermatitis, insect bites, and so on.
If shingles really triggers your complaint, often this condition is not fatal and can heal as long as your immune system is good. However, if it turns out to be another cause, of course this condition can require different treatments. Therefore, you should first check your condition to a doctor or neurologist.
As an initial effort, first resolve your complaint in the following way:
Compress the tingling mouth area with warm water
Limit contact between tingling areas first and foods that are spicy, too cold, or too hot
Expand eat foods rich in vitamins B1, B6, and B12
Do not smoke
Always keep yourself clean
Drink a lot of water
Do not carelessly take medication without a doctor's prescription
Hope this helps ...
