The Right Time For The Use Of Acyclovir Ointment For Chicken Pox?
Morning, I have had chicken pox as of today for 3 days. Red and runny nipple exists in several parts of the body. When should I use the Acyclovir ointment when a red nodule is seen, when it is filled with white liquid, or when it has ruptured? Please answer thanks
Hello Lia, Thank you for the question.
Have you checked your doctor for further examination and treatment? Chicken pox is a varicella zoster virus infection that causes the appearance of skin rashes in the form of fluid-filled fluid that can appear anywhere in the body. Before this skin rash appears, sufferers will experience high fever, headaches, and muscle aches. Chickenpox that occurs in adults can cause complications, especially for those who have low immunity. Some examples of chickenpox that can occur are skin infections, pneumonia, and encephalitis (inflammation of the brain). Therefore, adult chickenpox sufferers are advised to consult a doctor for further examination and treatment. Adult chickenpox sufferers will usually be given antiviral tablets. Provision of antiviral drugs aims to reduce the duration of pain, accelerate healing of skin rashes, and prevent complications. You can use antiviral ointment on all skin rashes that appear on the skin (whatever the rash is) for at least 7 days. Apply this ointment sufficiently to cover the skin rash.
Please avoid contact with other people until all the skin rashes dry up. You are also advised to close your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing to prevent transmission to others. If the skin rash breaks, you can clean it with a clean cloth.
Hopefully this information is useful.
