Can I sunbathe after chickenpox: recommendations of dermatologists
Hello, regular visitors and site visitors! Summer is the season of vacations and camping. Those who managed to recover from chickenpox before the onset of this lovely season, are interested in the question: can I tan after chicken pox?
Let’s face it, the sun bath to recover from the smallpox. Asked to treat this matter seriously, because the skin is given to us only once in life. If you spoil it once, you can restore the appeal will be difficult.
Can I sunbathe recover from chicken pox?
Chickenpox is accompanied by an extremely unpleasant symptom is watery rash all over the body. For place-ripened folderico crusts are formed, under which evolves a young thin skin.
If you tear them on purpose in their place are formed scars. What happens if you tan with these crusts?
I have to say, nothing good solar UV radiation chicken pox patient will not do. If the disease had not subsided, the sun and to stay long in places where a large number of people. Why? It has reasons:
- reason # 1 — you risk other people, as varicella is a highly contagious disease (transmitted through the air from the patient when talking, coughing or sneezing);
- reason # 2 — you may aggravate their condition and trigger the development of complications such as persistent pigmentation of the locations of pimples (this complication is more common in adults than in children).
But if the disease has receded?
The standard case is when the chickenpox a person is sick no more than two weeks. In children, the disease develops in the form of light. In adults — heavy, so may be delayed. In any case, to determine whether there has come healing, can only be a specialist (doctor).
And doctors agree that immediately after the recovery, you can not sunbathe! Moreover, there is not a specific answer to the question, how long after chicken pox can you take a sun bath.
Some doctors believe that for months after brown came off completely, the sun shouldn’t be. Others argue that to protect your skin from the sun is necessary for years after recovery.
Why after chickenpox can sunbathe?
The skin is undergoing the influence of the virus weakens and can not provide you full protection from ultraviolet radiation. Additionally, at the locations of folderico the dermis becomes thinner, as in place of old damaged there is a young pink.
She is very defeated by the malicious influence of external factors, especially UV rays. If you are going to expose her tan, instead of attractive chocolate even skin tone will get pigmented dark spots display which will have a long time.
When can I start tanning?
We have already mentioned that to answer the question: how much is impossible to sunbathe after varicella, is difficult. Everything depends on the survivors, its skin, its regeneration and other features.
After the crust will come, it will be a month (approximately) and you will notice that epidermis acquired a smooth natural color. Only then can gradually accustom updated the skin to solar UV rays.
Chickenpox and Solarium
If natural solar baths had been ill with chicken pox are prohibited, then perhaps they can go to the Solarium and get a tan?
Unfortunately, this method of tanning is also not suitable. In the Solarium on the skin is exposed to even more harmful artificial UV rays.
If the skin has already appeared spots, and you choose to align its color using tanning, it will only aggravate the situation. After this sun they will darken and become harder to stand out visually.
What do you do if you want to sunbathe, and the state does not allow?
Adults and children can recommend a few simple ways that will help speed up the healing process of skin defects chicken pox. By following them, you will be able to sunbathe in two-three weeks after we descend the crust.
Traces in the form of pink spots from vetranary pimples can be removed using these tools:
Sometimes the pimples appear not just spots, but very real scars: pits and scars. What to do in this situation? To get rid of them with the help of ointments, such as D-Panthenol and Amberen. I have to say, cure is so serious skin defects in a couple of weeks will not work. But when you will achieve the desired result, will be able to fully enjoy the summer sun.
On the Internet sometimes you can find comments and feedback from people who were sunbathing immediately after chickenpox (recovery) and did not get any complications. This is indeed possible, but not all. The body of each of us is individual, and the skin.
So, do not think that complications in the form of persistent dark pigment spots will bypass you. Better a little bear and to heal the marks vetranary blisters. Only after that can safely go under the sun.
