How is the treatment going forward ?? What foods need to be consumed? And how can the hands be strong again ?? Thank you dock 🙏
Hello Hiday, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Based on the story that you told, your father had a dull disease. Dompo in medical language is called shingles. This disease is caused by a virus infection with Virella Zoster, which also causes chickenpox. This disease is actually not dangerous, but sometimes cause complaints, or complications that interfere.
Some complaints that arise in this disease include nodules that appear like chicken pox on one side of the body (right or left), swelling, nodules will develop into blisters, pustules can occur anywhere, feel pain such as burning, stiffness, tingling, fever, headache, etc. Complaints of pain can still be felt even if the nodules are gone.
Shingles sufferers are those who have had chickenpox before. The virus will be inactive and hide in nerve tissue. One time it can be active again, and cause the herpes. It is not yet known exactly what causes the active return of the virus, but some allegations such as age> 50 years, weak immune becomes the trigger.
Treatment can be done when the disease is erect. After shingles is confirmed, treatment with antiviral drugs needs to be done immediately. The earlier the shingles treatment is done, the more effective the results.
Responding to your question about the current complaint that the right hand is squeezing is one of the complications caused by herpes zooster. It happened due to the inflamed muscle tissue due to the infection. For that you can consult a neurologist about the complaint. You can postpone it until it is conducive considering that covid-19 infection is rife. But if the complaint gets worse, or paralysis immediately take it to the neurologist.
That's all my answer, thank you very much :)
