Sometimes herpes rash jumps up on the fingers that it happens not all and not always. Why the virus prefers to attack is the skin?

And all because epithelial cells are most suitable for their reproduction and livelihoods. Erisipela may attack not only the skin, but also mucous membranes, as these fabrics she likes me too.

After recovery, the virus settles in the nerves, but then, in the case of relapse, again moved in the epithelium and, often, exactly where lived in last time.

Here are his peculiarities and eccentricities. But you cannot say that this is bad, since the epidermal cover to fight the virus easier than inside the body.

I was faced with herpes labialis. This sore appeared for the first time in his student years, then appeared a couple of times in adulthood.

Relapses I have infrequent and, therefore, immune to all normal, as for recurrence of the herpes viruses and the necessary enabling environment in the form of decrease in protective properties of the immune system.

Remember, if the herpes recurs often, then the immune system is constantly something wrong. In this case, it is necessary to address to the immunologist and get tested, which it turns out is the cause of chronic weakening of the immune system.

Treatment of skin girisindeki: traditional methods

Traditional medicine offers to treat the infection with antivirals. They come in the form of tablets and ointments.

So I try to use it in ointments, and your patients prescribe external medications if herpes develops in standard uncomplicated form. Such ointments include:

  • Zovirax based on all known antiviral Acyclovir;
  • Fenistil Pencivir on the basis of Penciclovir;
  • Alpizarin ointment is a relatively new drug, which has quite decent performance;
  • gels Bonafton, Panavir, Alpizarin.

With frequent relapses need to take immunomodulating drug — polyoxidonium, Cycloferon. They stimulate the immune system to protect against viruses, and even provoke the production of specific antibodies.

These drugs make just on their own, is strictly prohibited. The need for their use determines only the treating specialist, and get them without a prescription you will not succeed.
