A Blister Rash That Continues To Burn On The Thigh?
Hello, I want to ask, my 17-year-old friend. Her thighs are like herpes, but not because her body isn’t hot. It’s dried but grows again, looks like blisters everywhere. Already given herpes ointment but it does not affect even more spread and if dry like scorched skin. That includes what diseases and are they dangerous? For light handling how to improve. Hopefully quick in response, thank you
Thank you for the question.
A blister rash that continues to burn on the thigh can indeed be caused one of them by shingles (chickenpox). This disease arises due to reactivation of the Varicella zoster virus, a virus that previously caused chickenpox. Not all sufferers of shingles will have a fever. Most will only experience a rash on their skin, accompanied by body aches, easy glare, fatigue, headaches, and changes in appetite due to this disease. So, not appearing fever does not necessarily rule out the possibility of you experiencing shingles.
It could also, in addition to shingles, abrasions like you experience on your thighs appear due to other factors, such as contact dermatitis, bites or other insects, scabies, impetigo, folliculitis, fungal infections, drug eruptions, and so on.
To improve, you try to overcome the following steps first:
Take a diligent and clean bath every day
Wear clean and loose clothes
Diligent also wash your hands with soap
Do not hold the rash with dirty hands
Do not exchange any clothes or towels with others
Not also carelessly giving medication to the rash that appears
If in 1-3 days the rash actually spreads, you should consult a doctor or dermatologist directly to be treated further according to the cause huh ..
I hope this helps.
