Has chicken pox, drying out. Is it safe to handle baby? - Online Doctor Chats
current status: All misseles have come out and just started drying up
Ok Do you have some specific queries
hello sie gd eve
That is good thing
If they start drying out
she is no more infective to others
It passed from her father :)
That goes of
what do u mean by that? If it is in drying stage she can take our baby?
She is put on medication and that can cause fever
Not baby but adults
All the lesions should dry out before taking the baby
yes she is consulted by our house physician and she is under medication
Do not worry
How many more days this fever will stay?
Let her wait for two more days and she can carry the baby as well by then the lesions are dried out
like fruit juice etc?
You can speak to a Dietitian here
any fruit juice...some elders say it is better to avoid citrus friut like lime etc....is it just a myth?
avoid citrus fruit
usually how many days it should take to dry out totally?
7 to 10 days
but you mentioned earlier that she can take baby in two days frm now?
yes it is already 5 days now
so two more days she should dry up
You said they are drying out. If the lesions do not dry up then she should delay
ohh!! so 7 to 10 days from 1st day of infection.
yes since today mrng few of the leisons turned black
Ok good sign
but thumb rule is the infectivity nullifies when everything is dried out and the lesions fall
But fever will be there still another 2-3 days?
just another Q: you meant protein diet..does it include non-veg?
chicken muscle, fish, egg white
ok sir thanks a lot for this info...
I am just bit worried about this fever actually
is it normal for this fever to stay for three four days?
Are you given Acyclovir?
It can actually cause medication induced fever
Did you understand this?
She is in hometown now..what I only know she is under lot of medication(since last 1 day only) not sure abt the name
but fever is thr since last 4 days
Ok this could be either medication induced or dehydraton
either case she has to consume a lot
Did you understand?
thanks a lot 4 ur suggession
