What Ear Pain Due To Herpes Type 1?
I am a man aged 32, I have just had herpes type 1, but now it has improved a little, my question is whether herpes reaches the ear, because until now the right ear is rather painful and in the ear area Until the eyes feel numb, what is the solution
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Herpes is one of the names of viruses that can infect humans. In more detail, there are three groups of herpes viruses, namely alpha, beta and gamma. Herpes simplex virus type 1 belongs to the alpha group. This virus generally attacks the mouth and face, so when you experience it in the ear, it needs to be ascertained in advance from where the diagnosis was made.
If the diagnosis is not a doctor, then there is a possibility that this condition is not herpes, but other conditions that appear similar, such as impetigo, inflammation of the hair follicles, acne or so forth. In response to this, we suggest that you consult a general practitioner or dermatologist first, because the key to your treatment is the right diagnosis based on examination. Because even if there is a condition for herpes that has affected the eye, it already needs the help of an eye specialist. So it is important to check with a general practitioner or a dermatologist, to be able to ascertain his condition.
If it has been diagnosed by a doctor, and the complaint is still present, check your self at the doctor because it means you have not fully recovered. You must control so that the condition can be evaluated, whether the diagnosis is correct, and whether the medication should be added, reduced, or replaced.
Meanwhile, there isn't much you can do independently. If you have a lump that doesn't need to be held, just keep it dry and clean, take the medicine regularly if it's still there, and see a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
