How To Treat Chicken Pox?
, I want to ask. I just got chicken pox 2 days ago and started to arise from my back and spread to my chest. And now I feel aches and pains in my back. Well, about what happens, is it a healing process or will there be more smallpox? Thank you.
Chicken pox or Varicella Zoster is a disease caused by varicella zoster virus infection. Chickenpox is transmitted through droplet stones / sneezing sufferers or through direct contact with fluids in the skin lesions of chickenpox sufferers. Chickenpox is generally preceded by symptoms such as fever, sore throat, cough, runny nose, even diarrhea. Then a reddish skin rash will appear that will turn into a pimple filled with water (clear) that is easily broken. Smallpox skin lesions appear first and most often in the area of the chest and back, then spread throughout the body arms, thighs, neck, face, to the head. Chickenpox skin lesions are dominant accompanied by itching, especially when the nodules have broken and become crust (scab).
Chickenpox that occurs in adults will usually be more severe, skin lesions that arise more and are very spread throughout the body. The diagnosis of chickenpox was made by a doctor based on clinical symptoms and physical examination results. Chickenpox treatment includes:
Provision of drugs: antiviral drugs, fever-reducing drugs (paracetamol, ibuprofen), itch-reducing drugs (antihistamines)
Expand the consumption of water, highly nutritious foods, especially vegetables and fruits
Do not scratch the skin
Keep showering with clean water and antiseptic soap, dry your body well before wearing clothes
Wearing soft clothes and made from which absorb sweat
Chickenpox generally improves after 7-10 days. After recovering, the varicella virus settles on nerve fibers in the body. When the immune system, reactivation and Herpes Zoster disease can occur, similar to smallpox but local (only out in certain areas of the body) and dominant pain complaints. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
