How To Treat Herpes Sores On The Head?
Afternoon, how do I treat herpes sores on the head, while my head sweats frequently and the hair on my head can’t be bald because of these sores
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Shingles (shingles) can attack almost any part of the body, including the head. This condition is caused by the reactivation of the Varicella zoster virus which previously caused chickenpox but remains dormant (sleeping) in the body, to be precise in the nerve membranes around the brain and spinal cord.
The rash that occurs due to Herpes zoster is usually reddish, raised, watery, to fester resembling a blister. This rash can cause itching, burning, and pain which is quite severe for the sufferer. In addition, sufferers may also experience other complaints, such as being more sensitive to light, dizziness, headaches, weakness, decreased appetite, and so on.
Because the cause is a virus, the handling of Herpes zoster is done by administering anti-viral drugs. This medicine is taken orally (oral medicine) or also applied topically (ointment). In addition, several other drugs your doctor can also prescribe depending on the symptoms you are experiencing.
Overcoming the Herpes rash that appears on hairy parts of the body, such as the head, is tricky. The condition of the head that is often sweating can make the discomfort around the rash worse. In this condition, you can check your complaint directly to the doctor so that you can find the best alternative treatment. The doctor will also teach you how to use the right ointment for you (if an ointment is needed).
In the meantime, to help optimize healing, the following steps should be taken:
Bathing regularly 2 times a day Wash your hair once a day, but do not scrub your hair excessively. Comb your hair using a comb that is not too sharp and has rarely between segments. Clean combs that you use well, do not exchange combs or headgear with other people. If there is an ointment that the doctor prescribes, apply it on the smallpox rash as much as possible to cover the rash. If possible, shorten your hair Avoid staying in an environment that is too hot or hot so that sweat production can be minimized Take regular breaks, and eat healthy and nutritious foods. .
