Most of the people think that small pox
and chicken pox are same, but both of these diseases are differ from each
other. Only one symptom is found in both these diseases- erupting grains
(eruptions). But there is difference too in the eruptions of both these
diseases. The eruptions of small pox are big that is cracked from the
center and then dried up and scabs begin to appear on them. In the other
hand, the eruptions of chicken pox are small, does not crack from center.
These eruptions only dried up but scabs do not appear. Mostly, chicken pox
occurred in small children in their earlier (small) age.
case of chicken pox, small grains are erupted on the entire body, mostly
visible on the cheeks, mouth and everywhere on the body. These are red in
colour and light (low) fever also occurs with it.
If the symptoms of this
disease do not create problems for the patient, there is no need to
lying down on the bed.
The patient should not
scratch and prick the grains of chicken pox otherwise wounds and its
marks are generated.
The patient should keep
his body neat and clean. It is so necessary.
The patient of chicken
pox should take mostly liquid diet.
If the patient starts
suffering from wounds in the eyes, severe fever or too much cough and
vomiting, a doctor should be consulted immediately.
