Viferon when the chickenpox: the efficacy of the drug
Hello, dear readers! In modern times to treat chicken pox with the help of green fodder is not required. There are a lot more comfortable with the use of drugs, for example, Viferon, which is dedicated to this article.
Viferon when windmill is used in the form of rectal suppositories and ointments. Are you curious about which of these forms of release of the drug is considered to be the most effective? In any case it is better to use candles, what ointment? If you want to know the answers to these questions, then happy reading!
Varieties Of Interferon
There are several forms of this medication:
- rectal suppositories (candles);
We are only interested in the first two forms, since they are prescribed to treat the symptoms of chickenpox.
Features of ointment
Viferon is available in the form of ointments of yellowish color. It has a specific flavor that will appeal to everyone. But, for the sake of recovery can bear. The main active ingredients of the ointment:
- interferon Alfa-2b;
- tocopherol acetate.
The ointment is intended for external use — apply to the affected watery pimples skin. I recommend to apply it carefully as it stains clothes and bad dirt.
Features of rectal suppositories
We all know what rectal suppositories. To use them, of course, not as nice as a pill or ointment. But the effect of them is faster, since the active substance is in contact with the mucous membranes and is well absorbed. On the chart the active ingredient is the same as the ointment — interferon Alfa-2b. The contents of this substance can be different:
- 150.000 IU;
- 500.000 IU;
- 1.000.000 IU;
- 3.000.000 IU.
In the pharmacies you will find different types of candles Viferon. About what kind is needed when the chicken pox, I tell you later. And now I propose to review the principle of action of Interferon.
Efficiency and the principle of action of Interferon in chicken pox
Interferon Alfa-2b has some positive properties necessary for the treatment of symptoms of the above disease. The list presents the basic properties of this substance:
- stimulates the protective functions of the immune system;
- has a strong antiviral effect;
- partially relieves itching due to relieve inflammation.
The drug is prepared with natural antiviral component that enters the body, starts to work instantly. Due to this effect of Interferon is possible to notice almost immediately.
Are there any contraindications Interferon?
The only thing that is a contraindication is individual intolerance to the components of medicament. But, it should be noted that analogs of Interferon, which also contain interferon Alfa-2b, have a huge list of contraindications.
On this basis, we can assume that the interferon is the best safe antiviral and immunostimulatory agent.
How to use candles, and when they are appointed?
Suppositories often are assigned children newborn and very young. In addition, they may appoint adult.
The advantage of this form of the drug is that it is faster absorbed by the body and thus, begins to act faster.
For the treatment of watery pimples, in children, I recommend the use of suppositories 150.000 IU. Take them as one candle 2 times a day for five days.
If you want to cure chicken pox in infants, the number of receptions of candles sometimes increases to 3 times per day, but the dosage is reduced.
To the question, what should be the dosage for a newborn, you’ll meet your doctor. Be sure to consult with him before taking the above medication.
Viral watery pimples in adults are treated by suppository 500.000 IU. They should take one 2 times a day. The duration of treatment may vary from 5 to 10 days (depends on the course of illness and well-being of the patient).
Not all of us safely tolerate the procedure with the use of rectal suppositories. This is despite the fact that today, candles have become the most comfortable, compact and convenient.
Fortunately, there is a more aesthetic form of Viferon ointment. How to cure watery pimples from chickenpox?
Such a dosage form used to treat certain symptoms of viral diseases. In the case of chicken pox this symptom is watery rash.
The ointment should be applied to affected areas of the body a thin layer to gently rubbing. Do this very carefully, so as to injure watery Valderice is not desirable.
Skin treatment is carried out 3-4 times a day. The duration of the above treatment is 5-10 days.
The interferon may be combined with other drugs, for example, protivozudnoe, anti-inflammatory and the like.
Is it possible to be treated with Viferon for pregnant women?
Ointment and candles can be used to combat the symptoms of smallpox in pregnant women, since the fourteenth week. Suppositories can be taken during lactation without fear, but with the ointment must be used carefully.
It does not have similar contraindications, but I don’t recommend to apply it on the nipples and the areas around them, if you are breastfeeding.
Reviews and conclusion
About Viferon speak well mostly moms, who had to treat chickenpox in young children. In the reviews often note the ease of use and nice price of the drug. I suggest to read some of them.
Candles were used in combination with other antiviral. This treatment worked perfectly and rather quickly. Most interesting is that mild symptoms of chickenpox, such as high temperature and the like, were after the first use of candles. Overall, cure happy and all now recommend it!
Can not and do not want to challenge the effectiveness of such immune-boosting medicines. However, taking them too intensively and in such doses as prescribed in the instructions, I would not dare.
The fact that my friend, sick with chicken pox recently overdid it with the stimulators of immunity and earned a autoimmune neuropathy.
I really liked the ointment. I even thought that after applying the pimples itched less. After ointment Valderice quickly matured and passed.
Based on the foregoing, we can conclude that the interferon when the chickenpox it is advisable to apply. This is a relatively safe anti-viral medication is excellent and, most importantly, very quickly cope with their responsibilities.
