This type of Follicles since 5 days..What is diagnosis and treatment???



Dr.Patrik, It's VARICELLA caused by Varicella Zoster virus. Multiple blisters with different stages of the lesions throughout the body. Treatment Personal hygiene. Within 48 hours use Acyclovir 3 times daily. It reduces the multiplication of virus and severity of the disease. No influence on duration and complications. Calamine acts as soothing and reduces the burning and itching. Analgesics like paracetamol can be use. But Aspirin is contraindicated, because chances to get REYE'S syndrome.

Kindly tell whether associated with fever or myalgia D/d Chicken pox Molluscum Contagiosum with secondary infection

Chickenpox / rx aciclovir 250 mgs tds x 7 days / mupirocin on infected pustules / aciclovir cream apply 5 times a day x 5 days / calamine lotion nocte / isolate as it’s infectious / stages of chickenpox notes / papule/ vesicle/ pustule/ umbilicated scab
