At chicken pox many continue to use the popular green. However, it can mask possible skin inflammation in a child. This was told by a pediatric surgeon of the first category “SM-Clinic” Maxim Sergienko, writes “Gazeta.Ru”.
“Papules and vesicles are accompanied by itching, due to which children comb them and can infect the skin, this is fraught with the development of severe chicken pox abscesses and phlegmon, which progress rapidly in a weakened body and can lead to fatal consequences. The first sign of infection of the rash is reddening of the skin around the crust, and if this element is treated with “greenery”, then it is simply not visible, because everything is green,” the surgeon warns.
The elements of the rash should be treated with zinc mash. It does not pinch, dries, is washed off with water, has a good bactericidal effect. The doctor also recommends taking antihistamines. They have a sedative effect.
