A new discovery confirms the popularity of this infection


It has become known that shingles, a disease that is rapidly spreading throughout the world, is associated with chickenpox. This was reported by American scientists who conducted research in this area. This was reported by ng.ru.

According to data, there are 10-12 cases of shingles for every 100,000 people. And the number of sick people is increasing. Doctors note that the infectious disease is more common in adults. Moreover, such a high incidence rate is due to the fact that after chickenpox the virus remains in the spinal cord, but in the presence of comfortable conditions it begins to actively develop.

Among the factors contributing to the occurrence of lichen are weakened immunity due to past diseases such as hepatitis, diabetes, heart and kidney problems. Hypothermia and overheating of the body are also unfavorable factors.

Symptoms of shingles include weakness, fever, and intense pain in the area of ​​the affected nerve. After some time, bubbles appear on the skin, inside of which there is a clear liquid. However, these blisters are usually located on the chest. After the bubbles dry, crusts form in their place. People who have not had chickenpox are advised to avoid contact with patients, as complications such as sleep and vision disturbances are possible.

Taking into account the above, it is necessary to pay attention to the increase in the incidence of lichen and take measures to strengthen the immune system, especially in people exposed to the risk factors listed above. It is also important to take precautions to prevent the spread of the virus from sick to healthy people.
