A Red Bump Appears On The Arm That Gets Bigger And Feels Painful?
Hello r nI want to ask, on my left arm there is a red bump, at first it was a small bump, but then it got bigger. Then accompanied by pain in my left arm. It’s been two days that the bump is still there. What causes the disease and how to deal with it.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of red bumps on the arms that get bigger and then feel pain is not typical of allergic symptoms. This complaint is more likely to be caused by the following conditions:
Insect bites Irritant contact dermatitis (skin inflammation due to contact with an irritating substance) Skin infections, for example due to: Herpes zoster (snake pox) Impetigo (bacterial infection) Folliculitis (bacterial infection of the hair follicles) Benign or malignant skin tumors (for example, cysts, sarcomas) , etc. Have you had this complaint before? Do complaints appear in other parts of your body?
If the complaint does not go away in 1 to 3 days, or appears to be getting bigger, watery, pus, and causes other complaints, such as fever, decreased appetite, and so on, then you should check it directly with a doctor or skin specialist. Doctors can also recommend several tests, including a biopsy or allergy test, if necessary. As for the handling of what will be done later, the doctor will adjust to the cause of the hives and pain. Right now, you should focus on keeping yourself clean, namely by taking a shower regularly and always wearing clean clothes. Do not squeeze carelessly or give careless treatment to bumps that appear without the knowledge of the doctor. Also avoid contact between the skin and substances that are prone to trigger irritation or allergies on your skin.
Hope it helps ..
