Hello, I am 18 years old. I want to ask you, I have chikungunya pain. I have checked it and I forgot to say that the red rash or itchiness felt itchy, so what medicine should I buy for the itching ?? 😭

1 Answer:

Hello Lita,


Thank you for the question.

Chikungunya is a disease caused by a virus and transmitted through mosquito bites. Clinically, this disease is characterized by fever, pain in muscles / joints / bones, headache, skin rashes, nausea, weakness, and so on. Rash due to chikungunya often does not cause annoying itching. Conversely, if another ballast appears, for example a skin infection, atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, insect bites, and so on, it can just get itchy on the skin rash.


Without checking you directly, there is no specific treatment that we can recommend to resolve your complaint. It's just that, to reduce itching, you can sprinkle the salicyl powder first or apply calamine lotion. Accompany these steps by showering more diligently, washing your hands and cutting your nails regularly, wearing clean and soft materials, increasing relaxation, drinking lots of water, eating highly nutritious foods, and avoiding things that can make you allergic.


If with the above efforts your condition has not improved, do not hesitate to consult directly with the nearest doctor, yes. If necessary, the doctor can coordinate with an internist or dermatologist in giving you the right treatment.


I hope this helps.
