A Reddish Finger Between With A Slight Itching And Black Marks?
Night. I want it. The skin between the fingers of my right hand started with red symptoms and then I scratched a little, but it didn’t feel itchy. But over time so my skin blackened to form a pattern following the curve between the fingers. What are the symptoms of skin disease? Thank you
Thank you for the question.
A red finger between the fingers and a little itching can indicate that your skin is inflamed, for example because:
Miliaria (prickly heat) Allergic or irritant contact dermatitis Scabies (scabies) Tinea manum (fungal infections) Others, for example atopic dermatitis, tinea versicolor, impetigo, insect bitten, xerosis, seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, psychological disorders, side effects of drugs, and others etc. Your actions scratching the inflamed skin can obviously trigger hyperpigmentation which makes the skin look blackish. Not only that, your skin color can also become black due to the influence of excessive exposure to sunlight, genetic makeup, hormonal disorders, and many other factors.
It's best if you don't worry too much about this condition. Resolve your complaints by:
No longer scratching the skin that has complaints, especially if the itching is only mild. Wash diligently, also wash your hands thoroughly using antiseptic soap Before activity, use moisturizer and sunscreen thoroughly, even to the sidelines of your fingers Avoid contact between your skin with substances that make you allergic, and substances that are irritative in nature Do not carelessly apply or sprinkle anything on the skin that has a complaint before seeing a doctor If the complaint does not heal within 1-3 days with the above efforts, we recommend that you go for a checkup directly yourself to the doctor or dermatologist to find further solutions, ok?
I hope this helps.
