Right-sided Chest Pain When Eating?
Hello doctor, I want to ask, does the pain in the throat when swallowing and feels a little pain in the right chest when swallowing food, has something to do with chicken pox.
Hello Irvan, Thank you for the question.
Chicken pox is a varicella zoster virus infection that causes the appearance of watery rashes on the skin. These symptoms are also accompanied by other symptoms such as fever, headache, muscle and joint pain, decreased appetite. Watery rashes on the skin will dry up and become scabbed gradually and will heal within 5-10 days. In adults, chickenpox can cause certain health complications such as skin infections, pneumonia, encephalitis, and joint inflammation. Chickenpox generally does not cause symptoms of sore throat and chest pain when swallowing. The complaint you mentioned can be caused by:
stomach acid disease
If this complaint is very disturbing, please consult your doctor immediately. You are also advised to see a doctor if you have chickenpox. The doctor needs to ask questions about your complaint and examine you. Further treatment will be given by the doctor after ascertaining the cause. Please do the following suggestions as well:

avoid consuming large portions of food, it is better to consume smaller but more frequent meals
Avoid consuming spicy and oily foods
