The first signs of chickenpox in children, preschoolers

I think that every mother has a lot of questions when her baby gets sick. What to do? How to treat? How dangerous or fraught with complications? Your district pediatrician or infectious diseases specialist will be able to answer all these questions.

But every mother is not superfluous to know the first signs of the most common childhood infectious diseases. One of them is chicken pox (chickenpox). This will help you to orient yourself in helping the baby before the arrival of the doctor and in the further treatment.

Chickenpox – childhood disease

Most often, children of preschool and younger school age suffer from chickenpox, the disease is contagious, and the ill child gets immunity for life.

We have quite a lot of kids in the city who suffer from chickenpox. In the garden, the next group is closed for quarantine. We have a girl from the yard leads her child to this group, so there are already 60 percent of the children from the whole group.

And now my son came from the garden, he had several pimples. But then it turned out that this is not the case. But while it all turned out, I reviewed a bunch of information on the Internet and asked for advice from my sister.

This disease has bypassed us so far, so I will tell on the example of my niece, Sonya. She had chickenpox in the garden for 2 years and 10 months. They, too, then the whole group was quarantined. She steadfastly held on and fell ill with one of the last, just on New Year.

First signs of chickenpox

Since my sister knew that there were a lot of people in the group, she inspected Sonya every day trying to find the first pimples. They appear on the 14-21th day after the child has communicated with the patient. But they were not.

A week later, they had several acne on their backs. By all the rules, the rash should be pink with rounded contours. It first appears on the face or abdomen. So they went to the hospital to show their rash, the doctor told them that it was just irritation, not chickenpox. With a certificate from the doctor, the niece was sent to the garden.

A few days later, Sonya began to appear many pimples on his head and forehead. It was only then that they acquired the outlines that are described in all medical books about chickenpox. Then they became more and more. They turned from pimples into bubbles with a clear liquid.

The body temperature rose to 38-38.5 degrees, but it was already 3-4 days after the appearance of the first pimples. A new rash occurs very quickly, which is why it is recommended that each pimple be smeared with brilliant green to see whether new rashes appear or not.

If a rash occurs on the oral mucosa, on the conjunctiva of the eyes, then it is considered a severe form of chickenpox. And the condition of the patient becomes harder.

How to treat?




As a rule, chickenpox is treated at home. And only when the child’s condition worsens, do the doctors decide to put him in the hospital.

1) The child needs bed rest. The linen should be changed frequently, washed at high temperatures and must be ironed.

2) You need to drink as much fluid as possible. And the food should be mainly vegetable and dairy.

3) Pimples need to be treated with green paint in order to see new elements of the rash and not to earn additional purulent infection.

4) Try not to let your baby comb pimples. My niece has a few small scars on her face after a chickenpox. And if itching is strong, then antihistamines can be given.

5) If the body temperature is increased and exceeds 38.5 degrees, it is possible to give the child antipyretic drugs.

findings

A lot of kids are more chicken pox, there’s nothing to worry about. Worse, when a person in adulthood gets this disease. Since his condition is much worse and is fraught with complications. The main thing is to follow all the doctor’s instructions, air the rooms and everything will be fine.
