How To Deal With Chicken Pox That Has Been A Week?
Morning ,,,,,, I had this illness, namely chicken pox. It’s been a week and the pimple is a little out, only a few dots and still experiencing intense itching and heat at that point. If it’s like that, will the nodules come out again or not ???
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Chicken pox or known as varicella is a type of infection caused by a virus. In general, this disease attacks children, especially those under 10 years of age, but it does not rule out that it also affects adults. Chickenpox experienced by adults has more severe complaints than chickenpox in children unless there are complications or other additional infections.
The main symptom of this irus infection is the appearance of rash that is filled with fluid, is red, feels itchy and hot. May be accompanied by fever, pain in muscles and joints and general body discomfort. During the infectious period, rashes on the skin can still appear. The appearance of these bumps can occur all over the body starting from the face, neck, back, hands and feet.
The goal of treating varicella itself is to reduce symptoms and suppress the infection from the existing virus and it is advisable for you not to scratch the rash if it itches because it can lead to secondary infection or additional infections. This condition can cause scabs that leave a mark. or large cuts to the skin. To reduce these symptoms, you can follow the following tips:
Using lotion or calamine powder to reduce itching symptoms. However, do not give lotion or powder that is too thick. Rub gently if it feels very itchy. Keep taking a warm bath and soapy slowly Using loose, cotton-based clothes Consume enough fluids at least 2-3 liters a day. Have balanced nutrition to help the body fight infection. That's all I can say, hopefully it's useful.
