A Watery Itchy Lump Appears After Being Bitten By A Mosquito?
I want to ask, every time I get bitten by a mosquito, my skin immediately develops a small lump, but in the water, if it breaks it itches more than before and when it breaks it leaves a black mark. That’s why. Then how do you get rid of it?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
When biting, mosquitoes can release a compound that causes skin inflammation. This squeezing can trigger fluid seepage in wet skin. This condition often causes the skin that was bitten by mosquitoes to develop bumps or swelling. However, in some people, it can also appear as a watery rash, as you experience. Not only that, the skin inflammation from mosquito bites can feel itchy, reddish, or discharge. In most cases, complaints on the skin due to comfortable bites are not a dangerous condition. However, if this condition is constantly scratched, it can certainly trigger hyperpigmentation, this is what makes your skin look black. Not only that, skin that feels itchy and too scratched is also more prone to secondary infection and wounds, making it more difficult to heal and reduce scars.
Our advice, you resolve your complaint through the following efforts:
Protect yourself from mosquitoes, you can use a mosquito net, mosquito repellent, closed clothes, or also put mosquito repellent plants around the residence
When bitten by a mosquito, avoid scratching the itchy skin excessively, especially with sharp nails. Just apply calamine lotion or salicyl powder for itching to subside.
Be diligent in bathing and wear soft and clean clothes
Drink lots of water, eat fruits and vegetables, reduce foods that often aggravate itching (for example fish, eggs)
Perform the 3 M plus movement (closing, burying, draining, and sprinkling abate powder) to minimize the reproduction of mosquitoes, including mosquitoes that cause dengue fever
If with the above efforts your complaints do not get better, there's nothing wrong with seeing a doctor or a dermatologist directly. It is feared that complaints on your skin occur due to conditions other than mosquito bites, for example skin infections, contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, or a variety of other causes which of course require different handling from ordinary mosquito bites.
Hope it helps ..
