Hi,
There is no specific medicines for chicken guanea,you have to go for symptomatic treatment.
mainly severe joint pain is the main problem which is very distressing.
You have to go for pain reliever as and when required.you go for NSAID.
Remember along with analgesic you always take antacid tablet.
Gradually it will be alright.
Ok and bye.

welcome to healthcare magic,
I feel empathy for you. really chickenguniea viral infection causes incapacitating joints pain lasting for a couple of weeks to months. there is no specific treatment for this. management is usualy symptomatic focused on alleviating pain,fever and preventing secondary infections. for joint pain first try analgesic like indomethacin,ibuprofen and naproxen. if does not have much relief with these,take chloroquine 250 mg daily. anti viral medications is not currently recommended for this infection.
