Chickenpox: Symptoms, Remedies And Notes


Chickenpox is an acute, highly contagious disease. Both adults and children can become infected.

What is chickenpox? Causes of chickenpox
Chickenpox is an infectious skin disease caused by the Varicella Zoster virus (VZV). This virus spreads mainly through the respiratory tract.

Most cases are caused by contact with someone who has chickenpox, such as breathing in the virus when a person with chickenpox coughs, sneezes or comes into contact with the fluid inside the blisters.
Sharing personal items with someone who has chickenpox is also one of the causes of the disease.

Chickenpox symptoms
- Incubation period (from viral infection to disease onset): lasts about 10 to 20 days. At this time, it is difficult to know if you have the disease because there are no specific clinical manifestations.

- Period of onset: Fever, fatigue, headache and red rash a few millimeters in diameter. In some cases, sore throat and lymphadenopathy may occur.

- Severe period: High fever, headache, muscle aches, loss of appetite, vomiting. Erythema nodosum is a round, 1-3mm diameter vesicle with fluid inside. Acne occurs on the entire body, especially on the arms, legs, back, face, and oral mucosa.

If infected, the blisters will be larger in size and have a cloudy color inside because of pus.

- Recovery period: After 7 to 10 days of illness, if there is no infection, the blisters will break open, dry, flake and gradually recover.

Time to recover from 3 to 4 days, the location of skin blisters after desquamation will be darkened. At this time, patients should use medicine to limit dark scars, pitted scars on the skin.

Chickenpox cure
Chickenpox has no cure. Patients can self-treat at home by following the instructions and instructions of the doctor.
However, if there are signs of infection in the blisters or you are feeling too tired, you should be treated in the hospital to avoid dangerous complications.

Chickenpox disease and then re-introduced it?
People who have had chickenpox rarely recur because the body is immune to the disease. However, the Varicella Zoster virus (VZV) will invade, survive in the nerve root system and reactivate, causing shingles when the immune system is weakened.
