Salty, acute, acidic and smoked products should be excluded from ration.
At emergence of blisters they should be processed with manganic solution (2%) or brilliant green. If the eruption was formed on a mouth mucosa it is necessary to apply gargles with germicides, such as furacilin.
During illness the dermal itch may start disturbing patient.
