Hello Nur Fitria Ramadhani, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Chickenpox or in medical terms Varicella is an infection caused by a viral infection. Chickenpox generally will cause complaints of fever, headache, weakness, and also cause skin rashes. The rash that appears can be reddish protruding patches, blisters or fluid-filled blisters, or sometimes if an infection occurs, it will cause pus-filled fluid. The blister wound will later become a dry crust that will disappear within a few days.
You should be advised to consult with your doctor, especially to ascertain whether the complaint you are feeling is indeed a chickenpox condition or other skin diseases such as impetigo, hives / urticaria, contact dermatitis, insect bites or other skin infections. Your doctor needs more complete information, or a physical examination to see the condition of your skin directly. If it is proven chickenpox then your doctor will give medicines for chickenpox and if there is pus, your doctor may add medicines that contain antibiotics to help resolve your complaint.
Some things you can do are:
Maintain your immune system with regular sleep, nutritious eating patterns
Avoid scratching the rash or resilient area because it can cause irritation or infection
Wear clothes that are made of soft
Avoid contact with others to prevent the spread of chickenpox
If you have a fever, you can take over-the-counter medications such as paracetamol
Hopefully this information can be useful for you.
