Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Chickenpox (varicella) is a disease caused by a varicella-zoster virus infection that attacks the skin and mucosa. This disease begins with symptoms of fever, body weakness, and headache, and then a rash on the skin in the form of reddish brunts which subsequently turns into fluid-filled resemblements. They can also contain pus, then rupture and dry out. Generally, the rash on the skin spreads centrifugally, which starts from the body, then spreads to the face, apparatus, mucous membranes of the eyes, mouth, and upper respiratory tract. In individuals with strong endurance, skin lesions will usually dry out within 4-7 days of the lesion first appearing. Meanwhile, this process is usually longer in individuals with decreased endurance (for example: patients with HIV / AIDS).
Transmission of the virus occurs through the air. Risk factors for transmission include a 12-year-old child, history of never having chickenpox immunization, having never experienced chickenpox before, and working / doing daily activities in public places. The possibility of transmission of the varicella-zoster virus starts from 1-2 days before the appearance of skin lesions until when all skin lesions have dried.
We recommend that you immediately consult with your doctor or dermatologist so that evaluation and treatment is needed. Your doctor may give you powder, compress solution, and / or oral medication. One type of oral medication that doctors may give is medication to reduce complaints of itching.
As a suggestion, you should get adequate rest, drink lots of water, wear soft and light clothing, don't scratch your skin rashes, and take regular baths 3 times a day.
