Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Chicken pox (varicella) often will only affect the patient 1 time in his life. This happens because the body of a person with good immunity is able to form immunity to the virus after an infection. However, it is not impossible chickenpox occurs more than 1 time in 1 person the same. This condition is possible for example if the person has a problem with endurance, for example due to experiencing HIV / taking immune system-suppressing drugs in the long run, to experiencing malnutrition. It could also be that chicken pox occurs more than 1 time because of a different viral strain that infects the skin. Even so, the conditions above are actually very rare.
You also need to know, that red spots on the skin are not always caused by chicken pox. There are many other conditions that can also raise this complaint, including namely:
Skin infections due to other microorganisms, for example folliculitis, acne, warts
Inflammation of the skin besides infection, for example contact dermatitis, insect bites, drug eruption
Benign or malignant tumors on the skin
Hypertrophic skar, and so on
It's best if you don't panic. Try to check your complaint to the doctor or dermatologist. By looking directly at the type of red spot that you are experiencing, your doctor can generally distinguish chickenpox, or not. If necessary, some other supporting tests, for example biopsy, blood test, allergy test, etc. can also be recommended by your doctor.
In order for your complaints to improve, try implementing the following steps:
Bath diligently and cleanly
Always use clean clothes
Do not squeeze or force-pick the red spots that appear
Do not also give treatment carelessly on the red spot without the advice of a doctor
Drink plenty of water
Always live a healthy lifestyle
Hope this helps ...
