Cause The Whole Body Is Hot, Red And Itchy?
The whole body is red, hot and sore on the hands and feet … that’s why … does measles hurt or does it hurt? Thanks
Hi Dina. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The best way to diagnose skin disorders is basically done through direct examination of the patient, as it is difficult to confirm a diagnosis with limited information without seeing the abnormality in person. As information, whether there are fluid-filled blisters on the skin or slightly reddish patches? Reddish skin all over the body, which is accompanied by heat and itching can be caused by various factors such as:
Allergies Viral infections such as measles, chicken pox Bacterial infections such as impetigo Contact dermatitis Whereas measles is a highly contagious viral infection. The measles virus lives in the respiratory system, therefore transmission can occur through sneezing, coughing or touching. Airborne viruses can survive outside the body such as on objects for several hours and can infect anyone who touches them.
The initial symptoms of measles usually appear 1-2 weeks after being infected with the measles virus, such as:
High fever Red eyes and very sensitive to light Sore throat, cough, runny nose or sneezing Decreased appetite and weakness The presence of white patches in the mouth (coplik spots) Swollen lymph nodes A red rash will appear 3-5 days after the initial symptoms above, which starts from the face, behind the ears and spreads throughout the body which is often accompanied by itching. The rash will disappear within 7-10 days. There is no specific treatment for measles. Treatment is based on accompanying symptoms (symptomatic). Are you experiencing the symptoms mentioned above? To determine whether you do have measles, you should consult directly with a doctor so that a thorough examination can be carried out. Some tips that you can do to increase endurance such as:
Adequate rest Consume plenty of water to prevent dehydration Avoid foods that can cause itching such as eggs, cow's milk, shrimp, crab, nuts. Consume multi-vitamins to increase endurance. Wear loose clothing made of soft cotton. Fever can be treated with paracetamol or use antihistamines to reduce itching. Hopefully this information is useful. Best regards, Dr. Shirly
