Previously, I had the flu and a cold first, but it wasn’t too bad and I followed the diphtheria immunization at the puskesmas 2 days ago, then the body is hot and there are red spots coming out with water in it, is it not dangerous for my child’s chickenpox at this time, even though the vaccinations are routinely given? Thank you doctor

Hi Diyan,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Chickenpox (varicella) is a highly contagious disease. The mode of transmission can be through direct or indirect contact with the smallpox rash in other chickenpox sufferers. In addition, if your child inhales splashes of mucus from the patient's respiratory tract, your child can also be infected with chickenpox.

Chickenpox is characterized by the appearance of a rash that is initially reddish, then protrudes and fills with fluid. Furthermore, this rash will break and leave a scab. In addition to the rash, sufferers may also complain of various other symptoms, such as cough, runny nose, fever, muscle and joint pain, decreased appetite, itching, nausea, and so on. However, it should also be noted that there are several other conditions that can cause chickenpox-like symptoms, such as measles, hand foot and mouth disease, atopic dermatitis, and so on. Therefore, it is best not to make conclusions regarding your child's condition before going to the doctor.

In Indonesia, chickenpox immunization is still not included in the mandatory immunization from the government. Therefore, often parents fail to provide protection for your child. Therefore, if your child has been routinely immunized, but has never received chickenpox immunization, then he could have chickenpox.

It's best if you check your child directly to the doctor. If handled properly, namely by giving antiviral drugs and various other drugs to relieve complaints, chickenpox is generally not a dangerous condition.

In addition to checking your child to the doctor, you should also do the following tips:

Bathe your child 2 times a day, but do not rub the rash that appears excessively Isolate the child at home to minimize the potential for transmission to others Give the child nutritious food and drink Maintain sanitation and ventilation of your home Avoid giving children any medicine unless prescribed from the doctor Hope it helps ya..
