Hello, I am 27 years old, weight 68 and height 173 cm. Indoor activities.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of a lump around the area of hair growth, which is reddish, itchy, also runny can be a sign of folliculitis, which is an inflammation of the hair follicles. Frequently, this condition occurs due to bacterial or fungal infections that enter the skin through wounds on the skin, such as scratching, insect bites, or other injuries. Lumps caused by folliculitis can be reddish, swollen, itchy, painful, runny, and even festering. Frequently, these lumps will break on their own, then dry out, and heal, in people with good endurance. However, in some cases, additional management may also be needed, for example drugs, surgery, and so on.
In addition to folliculitis, the lump you mentioned might also be caused by prickly heat, acne, scabies, fungal infections, insect bites, milia, contact dermatitis, benign or malignant tumors, and so on. It could also, these lumps actually come from swollen lymph nodes.
Very many possibilities that can cause your complaint. Therefore, it needs to be further clarified as to what characteristics of the bump you are experiencing. So, try to check yourself directly to the doctor or dermatologist huh ..
At this time, avoid carelessly holding, squeezing, or removing lumps. Be diligent in bathing cleanly, wear also clean clothes and absorb sweat, and do not carelessly exchange personal items (including soap, towels, clothes) with others. To reduce itching, you can sprinkle salicyl powder on itchy skin. If there is a substance that makes you allergic, keep yourself away from contact with it. Finally, avoid the habit of pulling hair or doing hair extractions carelessly without consulting a doctor first.
Hope this helps ...
