The Body Often Aches After Recovering From Smallpox?
I want to ask, the last few months my body condition weakened as a result I often get sick followed by sudden stomach ulcers whereas before I had no history of heartburn. 3 months ago I was infected with smallpox. Does my current condition have an effect with the previous smallpox virus? Thanks for the answer. Jazakillahu khayr.
Chicken pox or varicella zoster is a disease caused by Varicella zoster virus infection. Chickenpox is a contagious disease. Transmission occurs from direct contact with vesicle fluid (water nodules) of the patient's skin or through inhalation of a patient's coughing / sneezing droplet containing a virus.
The symptom of varicella zoster is the emergence of a water-filled shaking that breaks easily on the skin. Pinch generally appears early in the back and chest area, then extends to the arms, thighs, face, so it can also be on the scalp. Before emergence of resilience, patients often experience preceding symptoms such as fever, sore throat, or diarrhea. Resurrection that appears accompanied by itching and if the leech breaks can form a scab. If body hygiene is not maintained properly, resilience can also be accompanied by pus in it due to secondary infection by skin bacteria.
Varicella zoster can recover after 10-14 days without any treatment because of the patient's own immune system. Provision of antivirals, antihistamines (to reduce itching), fever-lowering adjusted to the patient's condition during the examination. Varicella zoster virus will then be dormant in the nerves, which in the future if the immune system is weak can be active again and cause shingles.
Complications that can arise from chickenpox include:
Pneumonia Brain inflammation Eye disorders Dehydration Pregnant women: low birth weight babies, infant intellectual disorders, small baby's head size Seeing the distance of complaints 3 months seems too long to be associated with chickenpox at that time you experienced. Complaints of discomfort in the pit of the stomach (dyspepsia) can arise due to problems in the digestive organs, liver, pancreas, and bile system or it can also be due to functional dyspepsia (no organic abnormalities). Psychological stress factors and consumption of certain foods can also cause dyspepsia complaints. Further examination is needed to determine the cause of the dyspeptic complaint, organic or functional, to be able to provide the right treatment.
Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
