Men Feel Itching In The Area Of smallpox On The Feet And Arms?
, my husband took care of me who was sick with smallpox. In the past, my husband had had smallpox as a child and still left an impression on his legs and arms. I live in a boarding house, so everything is done in one room with my husband. Sleeping on the same mattress, sitting on the carpet where I was treated (powder even though it was swept back). My husband complained of itching in parts that were once infected with smallpox, well, please help, is my husband affected by herpes or smallpox? How to handle it?
Chicken pox or varicella zoster is a disease caused by varicella zoster virus infection. This infection is transmitted through sneezing or coughing droplets or contact with skin lesions of sufferers. Symptoms of chicken pox are usually fever, cough and runny nose, watery pimples appearing like drops of water, usually breaking easily. Bintil usually appears first in the back and body area and then spreads throughout the body. Itching complaints are generally dominant.
After recovering, the varicella zoster virus will reside in nerve cells in an inactive form. When someone is infected again with the varicella zoster virus, usually the disease that appears can be in the form of shingles or commonly called smallpox / smallpox snake. This time the nodules that appear will be grouped / attached with a dominant complaint is pain or heat in the area. The nodules will appear in the area that is innervated by the same nerve pathway. Other complaints such as body discomfort, fever, can also be experienced by patients. After recovering, the pain in the area of former shingles can last long and interfere with activity.
If you experience the above symptoms, you should consult a doctor. Herpes zoster treatment is antiviral medication and pain medication. Patients must maintain skin hygiene to avoid secondary infections from other germs. Avoid using the same clothes, towels, bed with the patient so as not to infect others. Maintain endurance with adequate rest, consumption of foods with balanced nutrition, and regular exercise so as not to be easily infected with the varicella zoster virus.
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
