Summaries for Chickenpox

MedlinePlus : 42 Chickenpox is an infection caused by the varicella-zoster virus. Most cases are in children under age 15, but older children and adults can get it. It spreads very easily from one person to another. The classic symptom of chickenpox is an uncomfortable, itchy rash. The rash turns into fluid-filled blisters and eventually into scabs. It usually shows up on the face, chest, and back and then spreads to the rest of the body. Other symptoms include Fever Headache Tiredness Loss of appetite Chickenpox is usually mild and lasts 5 to 10 days. Calamine lotions and oatmeal baths can help with itching. Acetaminophen can treat the fever. Do not use aspirin for chickenpox; that combination can cause Reye syndrome. Chickenpox can sometimes cause serious problems. Adults, babies, teenagers, pregnant women, and those with weak immune systems tend to get sicker from it. They may need to take antiviral medicines. Once you catch chickenpox, the virus usually stays in your body. You probably will not get chickenpox again, but the virus can cause shingles in adults. A chickenpox vaccine can help prevent most cases of chickenpox, or make it less severe if you do get it. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

MalaCards based summary : Chickenpox, also known as varicella, is related to herpes zoster and salivary gland disease, and has symptoms including fever, myalgia and anorexia. An important gene associated with Chickenpox is GYPC (Glycophorin C (Gerbich Blood Group)), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Innate Immune System and Akt Signaling. The drugs Methylprednisolone and Methylprednisolone hemisuccinate have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, t cells and testes, and related phenotypes are cellular and cardiovascular system

Disease Ontology : 12 A viral infectious disease that results in infection located in skin, has material basis in Human herpesvirus 3, which is transmitted by direct contact with secretions from the rash, or transmitted by droplet spread of respiratory secretions. The infection has symptom anorexia, has symptom myalgia, has symptom nausea, has symptom fever, has symptom headache, has symptom sore throat, and has symptom blisters.

CDC : 3 Chickenpox is a highly contagious disease caused by the varicella-zoster virus (VZV). It can cause an itchy, blister-like rash. The rash first appears on the chest, back, and face, and then spreads over the entire body, causing between 250 and 500 itchy blisters. Chickenpox can be serious, especially in babies, adolescents, adults, pregnant women, and people with a weakened immune system. The best way to prevent chickenpox is to get the chickenpox vaccine.

PubMed Health : 62 About chickenpox: Chickenpox is a highly contagious viral infection which mainly affects children. Typical symptoms include a very itchy skin rash with red blisters and a mild fever. Because most children are now vaccinated, chickenpox (also referred to as varicella) is much less common than it was in the past. If someone comes down with chickenpox, they are contagious after just one or two days, which is before they have a visible rash. But taking precautions and improving hygiene can help to avoid infecting others. Although chickenpox is unpleasant, it rarely has any serious consequences in children who are otherwise healthy. But it may become more severe in newborns and adults, as well as people who have a weakened immune system.

Drugs & Therapeutics for Chickenpox

PubMed Health treatment related to Chickenpox: 62

The treatment usually focuses on relieving the symptoms of chickenpox . In more severe cases, or if there is a greater risk of complications, antiviral drugs can be used to fight off the virus. Lotions, gels and powders are often applied in order to relieve itching and dry out the blisters . Most of them contain tanins, zinc , menthol or polidocanol . Sometimes oral medication like antihistamines is also recommended to stop the itching. But there is no good-quality scientific research on how effective they are. Symptoms like fever or aching muscles can be relieved using medicine that contains acetaminophen (paracetamol). The painkiller ibuprofen is not suitable for children with chickenpox . Children and teenagers should only take acetylsalicylic acid (ASA, the drug in medicines like Aspirin ) if it has been prescribed by a doctor, and only as a last resort. This is because it can cause a rare but dangerous side effect called Reye’s syndrome in children and teenagers.
