1 Answer:

Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Chicken pox in the medical world is called varicella. This disease is caused by the varicella zoster virus and can affect both children and adults. People who have this disease will experience symptoms in the form of a rash on the skin as the main symptom. The rash will later turn into a red rash filled with an itchy fluid, then dry up into a scab and then peel off.

Then shingles, also known as shingles, is an infection of the nerves and skin. Herpes is caused by the same virus as chicken pox, namely varicella zoster. The mechanism is that people who have had chickenpox in the past, even though they have recovered, the virus is still there and lives around the spine or the base of the skull. From time to time, this virus can reactivate and cause shingles.

Overall, the causes and risk factors for this condition are:

Age over 50 years old Decreased immune system Experiencing stress both emotionally and physically Take drugs that have immune-lowering effects such as steroids

So that in your case, it could be that your condition is caused by herpes because it is not impossible that the complaints on the skin spread throughout the body. However, to avoid misunderstanding, we think it is important for you to double check with a dermatologist because skin disorders are often described as having the same characteristics, but very different interpretations when seen by experts. If herpes is proven, your doctor may prescribe painkillers and antivirals.

Meanwhile, what you can do at home is not to touch, existing rashes, avoid using plaster or anything with adhesive, wear loose and soft clothes, consume over-the-counter paints by reading the rules of use listed, and getting enough rest. Get well soon.

That's all, hope it helps.
