Hi Novadhika,

Snakepox in medical language is called herpes zoster. Herpes zoster is a disease caused by the Varicella zoster virus, the same virus as chickenpox. After being exposed to chickenpox, this virus remains in the body and at any time can grow and reactivate and cause a herpes zoster infection. Because the virus resides in the innervation, usually the affected body part is in accordance with the branching of the nerves so that it often forms a belt line pattern or is like a snake, so it is called shingles. The rash is usually fluid-filled bumps (vesicles) based on red, usually non-uniform skin (some have ruptured or not). It feels very painful, and is in one particular part of the body.

Unlike the Stephen-Johnson syndrome, which is a severe allergic reaction. This reaction can be caused by various triggers, can be due to drugs or infections. Stephen-Johnson syndrome symptoms throughout the body, in the form of:

A red or purplish skin rash that spreads rapidly throughout the body Pain in the skin Peeling of the skin Swelling of the tongue and face Joint pain

You should take your brother to the doctor as soon as possible to ensure the cause so that it can be treated quickly. Snakepox can indeed heal by itself, but there are treatments that can relieve the symptoms and speed up the process, for example with the drug acyclovir. But if the cause is Stephen-Johnson, your sibling will need special treatment in the hospital because eating and drinking difficulties can be dangerous. In addition to requiring corticosteroid drugs, strong painkillers, antibiotics and fluid replacement are also needed.

Regards,
