There are things that every parent must know about! Pay attention to this information if your child has not yet had chickenpox . During chickenpox, children develop a rash, a headache, terrible fatigue, and a fever. To bring down the heat, the doctor may recommend using the traditional "Nurofen" or "Ibuprofen". Do not do this in any case!
How to treat chickenpox
"Nurofen" and "Ibuprofen" are effective in most cases, but only if the child is not sick with chickenpox. With chicken pox, these drugs are life threatening: the sores penetrate into the body of the child, who takes "Nurofen", deeper. This can cause septicemia , or sepsis, – infection of the blood! During chickenpox, the skin becomes very vulnerable to pathogenic bacteria, possibly suppuration of not completely healed scars. These antipyretic drugs worsen the situation, and this can lead to sad consequences.
If your child has caught chicken pox, you should be extremely careful. To treat chickenpox in children is necessary under the supervision of a doctor, but it is worth remembering about such an important moment to everyone from people without medical education. For example, in the US there were precedents when the doctor wrote out a prescription for "Nurofen" with chickenpox. For children it ended with resuscitation! Please tell everyone! Children's health is something you do not want to risk.
