Good morning, thanks for the question
Chickenpox or chickenpox or known in medical terms as shingles is a varicella zoster virus infection in nerve fibers. This infection is a varicella virus that causes chickenpox which is active again in the body after the patient was infected with chickenpox a few years earlier, so that shingles appear.
Reactivation of the virus is one of them in attacking the ophthalmic nerve fibers that innervate the area around the eye. This condition is known as ophthalmic shingles (HZO). If not handled properly can cause complaints of persistent pain and vision problems.
Early symptoms of HZO include fever and weakness. Then followed by symptoms of numbness in the innervated area for example in the forehead and around the eyes. After that a reddish rash will appear accompanied by a fluid-filled fluid that, if broken, will form a scab. Another symptom is heavy swelling of the eyelids after resilience appears.
HZO suspicion requires a thorough eye examination. When the diagnosis of HZO has been established, anti-viral treatment and other additional therapies are immediately given. Carry out further consultations with an ophthalmologist for evaluation and treatment to prevent complications.
That's all, hope you can help
