Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Liquid smallpox or varicella is a primary acute infection by the Varicella zoster virus which attacks the skin and mucosa. One risk factor for chickenpox is a history of close contact with people with chickenpox. Skin disorders caused by reddish nodules that in a short time form fluid-filled nodules. Initially the nodules are smaller and are few in number, but eventually they will get bigger and bigger. Complaints are also accompanied by itching. Previously, patients will complain of fever, not feeling well, and headaches.
The diagnosis is made by a doctor by looking at skin disorders directly because the skin disorder is quite typical. Treatment of varicella is by giving oral anti-viral, reducing complaints of itching, adequate nutrition and avoiding friction on the skin. The effectiveness of anti-viral drugs is best obtained if consumed since the first 24 hours since the start of reddish nodules filled with water appear.
At this time you should immediately consult a doctor for adequate examination and treatment.
That's all, hope you can help.
