Thank you Putri for your question on the HealthReplies.com forum, chicken pox is a disease caused by the varicella zoster virus. This virus is transmitted through droplets of the sufferer or contact with a wound on the patient's skin. In this condition, the complaints usually arise in the form of:
- there are fluid-filled bumps on the skin
- body uncomfortable
- decreased appetite
- tired easily
- may be accompanied by sore throat
In the condition of chicken pox can be accompanied by sore throat. This condition is a normal condition, but sometimes a sore throat can also be caused by additional infections due to a bacterial infection. Usually the condition of chickenpox can improve in about 5 to 10 days. Treatment in cases of chickenpox can usually be given anti-viral drugs, as well as drugs that are useful for relieving symptoms such as fever, sore throat, or itching. However, this should still be checked back to the doctor concerned for direct examination to ensure the condition of the sore throat that is experienced before it can be given a proper treatment.
