n, sorry, I want to ask again, if you have smallpox, you can’t take a bath, then if you can take a shower, do you use warm water or cold water?

1 Answer:

Hi April,


Smallpox or in medical language known as "varicella" is an infection caused by the varicella zoster virus that attacks the skin. Smallpox usually occurs once. Symptoms that appear starting from fever then appear red spots, itching and filled with water then will dry up and become scabs within 7-14 days. There are no restrictions for people with smallpox to take a bath. Instead, patients are advised to take a bath to keep the skin clean. However, there are a few things to keep in mind when taking a shower:


It is recommended to use warm water


Take a shower slowly so that the liquid bubbles on the skin don't burst


Use a soft towel and dry gently


That's the information I can convey, hopefully useful. Here I include an article about chickenpox
