Human skin is the largest organ in the human body. It is also what is most exposed to the external environment, so it is clear that it is an organ that can acquire different types of diseases.
Some of these diseases are easier to deal with, such as ringworm or acne, for example, which are more common and treated by us with some naturalness. But there are also those that are more unknown and that can generate doubts, such as vitiligo , rosacea or even shingles , also called herpes zoster, which requires a more specific treatment, which can make many people scared at first.
Because it is a little-known and little-talked about disease, shingles can often cause embarrassment and inconvenience in various situations, even if the disease does not bring as much harm as many imagine.
The truth is that, many people associate shingles only with the immunodeficiency virus (HIV) , which makes them end up being embarrassed and even suffering certain types of prejudice . But in order for it to be fought and, more importantly, for it to be aware of what this disease really does and how to cure it, it is necessary to know it, as well as its causes, symptoms and treatments.
What is the Cobbler?
Copper is a skin disease caused by the chickenpox virus , the same as chicken pox . The virus remains inactive in the person’s body until someday it can be activated again. This means that only people who have had chicken pox can have shingles, or shingles.
People who have never had chicken pox, but who have come into contact with the shingles virus, will first develop chicken pox and then herpes zoster.
Main Symptoms of Copper
There are some stages of the disease and each group of symptoms appears in one of them. Knowing this is important to be able to identify the stage at which the disease is. The first symptoms a person with shingles feels are:
- Bad to be
After this first phase, it is common for the itchy spot to become red and for small bubbles to appear. These bubbles are usually accompanied by a transparent or slightly yellowish liquid. They usually appear only on one side of the body and are more common in some regions such as:
- Around the waist (this is the most common region)
After 4 to 6 weeks, these blisters tend to dry out , but they can cause a lot of pain depending on the size of the blister and the region where it is. Often the marks they leave end up remaining for a lifetime.
How does copper transmission occur?
The transmission of the cobreiro occurs by direct contact from person to person. This means that any kind of contact with the secretions produced by herpes zoster blisters can infect another person.
Despite this, this is not a disease that is present in your body 100% of the time, appearing mainly in situations of high stress , when the body is with low immunity or when there is a strong exposure to the sun.
How is the Treatment of the Copper Plant Done?
Conventional treatment of shingles is done through antiviral drugs that directly attack the virus and decrease symptoms. It is important to note that the chicken pox vaccine is also a vaccine against shingles. But there are still other types of home treatments, designed to relieve the holidays and the symptoms of the disease in general.
Home remedies can relieve pain and reduce blisters caused by shingles, but they will not act on the virus to eliminate symptoms. This type of treatment is ideal for those who are suffering from pain or have very strong symptoms of the disease. The main home remedies for shingles are:
- Hydrogen peroxide applied in drops directly to the bubbles.
- Pure honey or leek juice to relieve itching.
- Oatmeal applied to wounds.
- Dandelion leaf tea. Remember that tea is to be ingested and not applied to wounds.
- Aloe gel applied to wounds.
- Spicy chili seed cream applied to wounds.
These are just some of the home treatments you can do to relieve the symptoms of the disease such as itching, blisters and pain, but it is necessary that treatment with antivirals also be done if you really want to improve.
Group of risk
Although all people who have had chickenpox have a chance of having shingles, there are some groups that are more at risk of developing the disease, either due to the low immunity of the organism that these people have or due to some fact that has occurred in their lives. These groups are:
- Elderly – Due to low immunity
- HIV carriers – Also because they have low immunity
- People who have not had the vaccine against chicken pox
- People who have had a transplant
- Cancer patients
Cobreiro is a disease that can appear in different types of people at different times of life, even though there are risk groups. Knowing what it is, what are the consequences that the disease brings and what is the best way to carry out the treatment is very important not only so that people who have shingles can be cured, but also to demystify the notion we have about certain diseases in society.
It is very important to be aware and to be careful not to be affected by viruses and bacteria, but we also need to know the extent to which this protection of ours is not an exaggeration and can embarrass others.
My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
