Hello wr. wb.

Wa'alaikumsallam Dika.


Varicella or chickenpox is a very common viral infection, especially in children and adolescents. The virus enters the body when a person is exposed to saliva, phlegm, or fluid from the skin blisters of people with chickenpox. When the immune system fails to cope with the virus that enters the body, an infection in the form of chicken pox occurs. This infection is general, meaning that it can affect the entire body. Generally the infection is mild or moderate and rarely causes severe complications.


A comprehensive viral infection can cause symptoms:

fever
headache or dizziness
muscle and joint pain
limp
nausea, vomiting, no appetite, sometimes accompanied by diarrhea
sore throat or swallowing pain
cough
red rashes and skin blisters

The throat pain that you feel is most likely due to the chickenpox infection, so the throat or tonsils may become inflamed. Sore throat pain can also be caused by smallpox blisters on the oral mucosa and throat which then ruptures when exposed to food. You do not need to worry, this pain can generally heal itself in about 2 weeks. Medications given by doctors generally aim to reduce the uncomfortable symptoms that you feel and to increase immunity. Get plenty of rest, drink lots of water, eat high-protein foods, avoid excessive activity, and limit contact with others, especially children who have never been infected with smallpox or the elderly who are sick. If you cough, cover your mouth with your hands then wash your hands, if necessary use a mask. Bathing twice a day, pat the skin with a towel so that the blisters do not break. When the blister is dry, do not peel it because it will cause bad marks. Hope this answer helps. Regards.
