Chickenpox does not lose its relevance today, although there are vaccines against it.Children both ached with it, and continue to be ill.
Varicella or chicken pox is a viral infection, the virus itself refers to herpes, after a person has chickenpox, the disease can be preserved forever.
The peak incidence of chickenpox falls on the children's age of four years and up to, approximately, the third grade.There is a positive moment in this, despite the fact that quarantine is always arranged with chickenpox, the children tolerate the disease easily, except for those who have serious diseases and children for up to a year.The virus is not transmitted to the animal, only from the person to the person, and after having had it, the children receive lifelong immunity, but adults are more difficult to tolerate this disease and can earn shingles.
Infection occurs from children who have a disease in the incubation stage or have a rash that has not dried up yet.If there is no immunity to the disease, the vaccine was not vaccinated either by contact with the patient, the probability of getting sick is 100%.
The virus spreads well through the air, and even those who do not contact the patient can get sick, but simply live nearby or stand side by side, is in neighboring classes or groups, it is because of this that an epidemic quickly forms with a sick one.The virus through the mouth or nose enters the body and multiplies rapidly, and getting on the skin, causes the appearance of a rash, due to which even more viruses enter the environment.
The incubation period for each child lasts in its own way, but it can be maximum about three weeks, so quarantine with chickenpox lasts twenty-one days, this allows to identify all the sick children.
Most often, the disease manifests itself after ten days of infection, and infectious children become approximately two days before the onset of the rash.
The earliest signs of the disease:
- Elevated temperature
- Appetite disorder
- Persistence in the throat, snotty, that is, light signs of viral diseases.
When the rash appears on the body, the temperature abruptly goes up.And the rash does not immediately cover the whole body, and the appearance of new foci of rash leads to temperature jumps.The rash appears everywhere, except for the palms and soles, the vesicles in the mouth are very painful, girls can be bothered by vesicles on the genitals.The rash stays on the body for two to three weeks and then dries up and disappears without leaving any scars or traces.
