Liquid-filled Lumps That Are Large Enough?
I want to ask, I have chicken pox but how come the lump is quite big huh?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Chickenpox is a primary acute infection by the Varicella zoster virus which attacks the skin and mucosa. Common complaints include fever, weakness, and headache. Then followed by the emergence of reddish nodules that within a few hours turned into fluid-filled nodules. Skin eruption in the form of reddish nodules which within a few hours turn into fluid-filled nodules or called vesicles. The shape of this vesicle is typical in the form of dew drops. If the vesicles are large and fluid, they may appear large nodules. If nodules tend to be large and are only localized to one area such as the back or chest, then it should be suspected as shingles. Shingles is a reactivation of the varicella zoster virus from a previous infection. Another possible diagnosis with a large, fluid-filled nodule or lump is an infection of the superficial layer of the skin called impetigo.
Consult with your doctor to evaluate your current complaint and possible causes. The optimal treatment will depend on the cause of the complaint.
Suggestions that can be done is to avoid skin friction so as not to cause rupture of vesicles, rest and prevent contact with others.
That's all, hope you can help
