Sorry to ask, my son contracted chickenpox from me, he is only 2 years old..rnThe question is whether the aclyclovir ointment that I use can be used for my child too..rnAnd how long does it take for the healing to take place? my son..rnThanks in advance for the information..
Chickenpox, also known as varicella, is caused by a virus called Varicella-zoster. This virus usually causes the appearance of a red rash on the body. Then a small nodule filled with fluid appears. In addition, chickenpox can also cause fever, fatigue, chills and muscle aches.
Treatment for chickenpox has no specific management and will heal on its own over time. The immune system will naturally fight the smallpox virus infection. The purpose of treatment for chickenpox is to reduce the complaints caused, speed up the healing process and reduce the spread of the virus.
One of the treatments is to use an antiviral drug known as Acyclovir. This drug is effective for use within 24 hours after the rash appears. This medicinal preparation is in the form of tablets and ointments, can be used for adults and children. For dosage and use, you should follow the advice and instructions of a doctor. Please note, this drug does not kill the virus only reduces the spread of the virus.
In addition, to speed up the healing process, efforts should be made to boost the immune system by: taking supplements/vitamins, drinking enough water, getting enough rest and eating nutritious foods. It's best not to scratch the nodule as this can spread the virus.
Our advice, you should check your child at the doctor, for a physical examination and proper treatment.
