How To Deal With Shingles On The Skin?
evening u003cbr u003I want to ask, what is the cure for a thyroid disease that grows on the neck?
Hello Afrima, Thank you for the question.
Wingparts or shingles are infections caused by reactivation of the varicella zoster virus which also causes chickenpox. Reactivation of this virus causes the appearance of watery rashes on the skin which covers an area that is innervated by the same nerves that are attacked by this virus. In addition to the emergence of watery rashes, patients will also experience complaints of pain in the area of the rash, fever, headache, fatigue.
When a person recovers from chickenpox, this virus will become inactive and silent in the body, which is at the nerve roots. One time, this virus can become active again (reactivation) and cause symptoms in sufferers. Shingles is more common in people over 50 years of age and who have a low immune system.
Shingles can appear anywhere on the body. Because it appears in the neck, pain can be felt in the upper back, ears, and head. It is highly recommended that you consult a dermatologist. The doctor will ask about your complaints and do a direct examination of the skin rash that appears to determine the cause. If it is caused by shingles, the doctor will give antiviral medication. Provision of antiviral drugs aims to accelerate healing and prevent further complications. You are also advised to wear loose clothing and avoid contact with other objects in the area to avoid pain. If there is a runny rash that breaks, you can clean it slowly with a clean cloth. Avoid contact with others, especially pregnant women and children. There is no taboo on shingles sufferers. You can consume paracetamol or other pain relievers to treat pain in the rash and headaches.
Hopefully this information is useful.
