Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
The condition of chicken pox (varicella) is characterized by the appearance of water-filled plenting which will spread throughout the body. This condition usually begins with symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat, which often results in fussy children.
However, the condition for plenting on the skin can also be caused by:
Herpes simplex: usually occurs in the area around the mouth. Plenting is painful. May be accompanied by fever. Bacterial infection: the plenting usually contains a yellowish discharge (pus). Can appear on the face or hands, feet. Mite infection (scabies): reddish plenting usually starts from the area between the fingers. You should first check your child's condition with a dermatologist or pediatrician to find out the exact cause. The doctor will conduct a detailed skin examination of your child, and if necessary, a blood test or examination of the fluid contents of the plenting will be performed. Furthermore, treatment will be carried out according to the underlying cause.
Things you should do at home to improve your condition and prevent worsening are:
Do not try to break the existing plenting. Cold compress the affected area to reduce inflammation and pain. Take care of personal hygiene, clothes, towels, sheets for children and families. medicine in children must be adjusted based on body weight. Adequate nutrition for children, continue adequate breastfeeding and complementary foods to increase children's immunity Do not take children to play outside the house first to maintain good immunity and avoid infection to other children. Hopefully helpful and useful. Get well soon for your child :)
