Severe Chicken Pox On The Face And Head Since 3 Days Ago?
Hello !! my name is irwan. I have been getting chicken pox since 3 days ago. I want to ask, chicken pox that I suffered badly on the face. and more into the eyelids. is it dangerous .. thanks
Hello Irwan, Thank you for the question.
Have you seen a doctor and confirmed that you have chickenpox? If you only experience watery irregularities in the facial area, then you are most likely not experiencing chickenpox. Chickenpox is an infection caused by the varicella-zoster virus which can cause the emergence of watery resilience throughout the body, not just on the face or certain body parts. This runway will dry up and form a scab. These symptoms will also be accompanied by other symptoms such as fever, headache, and muscle / joint pain.
Watery resilience that is only found in the face area may be caused by shingles. Shingles, also known as snake pox or chicken pox, is an infection caused by the same virus as chicken pox. This condition is experienced by those who have previously experienced chickenpox. When a person recovers from chickenpox, the virus does not disappear from the body but dwells in nerve roots. One time if the person's immune system is being decreased, this virus can become active again and cause infection. The symptoms caused by this infection are the emergence of watery twisting which covers a certain area which is innervated by the same nerve, only arises in the right or left side of the body, and feels painful. This runway will dry up and form a scab. In addition to shingles, watery leaking complaints that only occur on the face can also be caused by herpes simplex virus infection.
The best step you should take right now is to immediately consult with a dermatologist further. The doctor needs to ask about your complaints and do a direct examination on you to ascertain the cause. Treatment that will be given by a doctor will be adjusted to the cause and your condition. If it is caused by shingles, the doctor will give antiviral medication to help speed healing and avoid further complications. You should also not delay consulting with a doctor because stretches to the eye area can potentially cause vision problems.
In the meantime, please keep this area clean and dry; avoid squeezing the watery streamers. If you have a fever or body ache, you can take paracetamol. You are also encouraged to continue to adopt a healthy lifestyle by consuming nutritious food, adequate water consumption, and getting enough rest.
I hope this helps.
