Chickenpox is one of the popular diseases. Many doctors insist that it is better to get over it in childhood. This is due to the milder form in which the disease occurs.
Children are much easier for adults to tolerate temperature and itching on the body. In adults, there are more serious symptoms that cause a lot of discomfort.
How does chickenpox flow?
It is believed that a child has chickenpox in several characteristic stages. They all have their own characteristics and characteristics.
The first period is considered incubation. At this time, a virus appears in the body. According to the doctors, the incubation time is about 2 weeks.
In the body there is a virus that begins to reproduce itself. The child at this time does not feel any discomfort. According to it, it is not clear that a serious disease will begin very soon.
The prodromal period is the second stage during which the first symptoms appear. They resemble the most common infectious and inflammatory processes.
It may seem to many that the child suffers from a cold as a cold or ARI. This is manifested in the form of general malaise, weakness, fever, runny nose and cough.
The third period is characterized by bright and characteristic rashes on the body. The rash in a short period of time spreads throughout the body, without affecting only the palms and heels. After the whole body is filled with a rash, it begins to transform.
Over time, the rash turns into small specks with whitish liquid inside. This begins to give the child an itch and discomfort.
The fourth and last stage is characterized by the absence of infectious manifestations of the disease, new lesions.
Chickenpox is contagious only for a week after a rash rash. As soon as the rash subsides, begins to pass, the infection is not contagious to the rest of the children.
High temperature in baby chicken pox
Often one of the first manifestations of chickenpox is a high temperature. However, until a characteristic disease appears on the skin, it is rather difficult to detect the existing problem.
The temperature rises, trying to fight the infection. The virus can be killed if the body temperature rises to 37 degrees. The body wants to cope with the problem on its own, giving a signal to action, thereby heating the body.
But, as a rule, the body fails to cope with the problem on its own, then the virus enters the bloodstream. At this time, intoxication or poisoning appears. At this point in time, the temperature becomes as high as possible.
During chickenpox, the temperature may indicate that the body is trying to cope with the problem on its own. If the body temperature does not exceed 38 degrees, then shoot it down is not required. In the case of 37 degrees, it is necessary to use more fluid, replenishing reserves in the body for a new struggle.
Can there be an atypical chickenpox with fever, but no rash?
Scientists have noted the occurrence of the so-called atypical chickenpox. It has a lot of differences from the most common disease.
First, at this time there is no increased body temperature. The child may experience only general malaise.
Secondly, the rash is only in small quantities or completely absent. To diagnose the disease can only be a doctor after laboratory and research analyzes.
Typically, atypical chickenpox occurs in children who have been vaccinated against this disease. In addition, the problem is often found in newborns with elevated levels of immunoglobulin in the blood.
What is the temperature at chicken pox?
Children react differently to diseases. Hence the problem in determining the exact temperature for chickenpox. It can be both elevated and completely normal.
In the event that the disease is mild in nature, then the temperature is observed only for the first 2 days and does not exceed 37 degrees.
The most common cases of moderately severe chickenpox. At this time, the elevated temperature lasts 4 days and its value is approximately 38-39 degrees.
The worst and most difficult option would be chickenpox with a temperature lasting 7 days. At the same time, its value fluctuates approximately in 40 degrees.
How many days does the temperature
Hot body is noted several days before the rash appears. It is a characteristic symptom of the disease. The number of days depends on how hard the chickenpox is.
With mild illness, fever lasts from 2 to 4 days. With a serious stage 4-5 days. Severe stage is characterized by 7 days.
In advance, none of the doctors can predict how hard the child will suffer the disease. First of all, it affects its immunity and the body's ability to fight.
As a rule, children who are ill more often, with a weakened immune system, have a serious nature of the disease. Often they have complications. Children with strong immunity still suffer from chickenpox. However, they have it proceeds easily and quickly.
Do you bring down the temperature when chickenpox
Many parents are interested in the drug question, namely, when it is necessary to give antipyretic drugs. First of all, we must look at the general condition and well-being of the patient.
As a rule, children calmly tolerate body temperature up to 38 degrees. Therefore, it is not necessary to shoot down. The task of parents is only to give plenty of drink and not to overheat, so that the temperature does not creep up. The body must independently learn to fight viruses and infections, which will contribute to a better production of antibodies.
How to beat down the heat?
In the first aid kit must be antipyretic agents. They belong to the group of nonsteroidal drugs that have an anti-inflammatory effect on the body and anesthetic.
The main antipyretic drugs include:
Pay attention to the form of release of drugs. It is most convenient for young children to give syrups or candles. Each drug is applicable for children of certain ages. Universal are Nurofen syrup, which can be used from birth and Tsefekon candles.
Nurofen syrup is highly effective. The temperature gets off after 15-20 minutes, while its action lasts for 12 hours. Tsefekon candles, which last for 5-6 hours of use, are considered to be less effective.
What if it does not go astray?
It happens that the temperature during chickenpox does not go astray. At this time, a real panic ensues for the parents.
If you have given your child an antipyretic, an hour or two has passed, and she did not get lost, you should immediately consult a doctor. Especially urgent need to respond with young children.
Council of Dr. Komarovsky
Dr. Komarovsky is strongly advised to properly treat the child with chickenpox. First of all, it will need to be isolated from the rest of the children. For example, you can create a suitable atmosphere in another room.
As for Zelenka, Komarovsky is skeptical about her. This tool does not carry any functions. Moreover, it is not used in any country in the world. However, brilliant green is only a wonderful marker by which you can track the newly emerging spots.
The rash is best lubricated by really standing means. This may be rivanol, fukortsin, Calamine lotion. These drugs are more expensive than brilliant green. But they can definitely be called effective. They will help relieve itching and turn the inflammatory process.
In no case do not self-medicate. If you understand that your child has chickenpox, you should immediately consult a doctor. A pediatrician, after examining and testing, will be able to accurately diagnose you.
At the same time, consult with him about the treatment and incubation period, during which contact with healthy people is prohibited.
