Causes And Treatment Of Water-filled Bumps On The Feet?
, excuse me I want to ask. r nMy father on the edge of the edge of the sole of his feet often appear bumps filled with water like blisters suddenly. Do not feel when the lump appears but when it erupts it will feel very painful. My father also never did activities that required removing his footwear. What do you think about that disease? Then how about prevention and cure? R n r nPlease answer, I’m waiting Thank you for your help ☺
Hello, good morning Tiwi.
Water-filled bumps on the feet can be caused by several conditions, including:
dyshidrotic eczema (pompholyx). This disease is characterized by the presence of small, fluid-filled blisters, often on the fingers, palms, and soles of the feet. These diseases generally come and go, cause itching, pain, or burning sensations.
irritant contact dermatitis, which is inflammation of the skin due to irritation. for example irritation due to the material from the footwear used, coloring agents from the footwear used, etc. The main complaint of this disease is bruntus-filled fluid that feels hot, itchy, or painful.
shingles on the feet, a characteristic of this disease is a skin disorder that is experienced only on one side of the body (only right or only left)
bacterial infection of the skin of the feet
It is very difficult to be able to diagnose a skin disease without doing a direct examination because the appearance of the skin disorder that occurs determines the diagnosis. Therefore we recommend that your father see a doctor. The doctor will conduct questions and answers regarding complaints, conduct a thorough examination. Generally no additional examination is required for these complaints, but if it is necessary the doctor may recommend a skin lab examination.
Meanwhile, while waiting for your father's schedule to see the doctor, here are some suggestions that we can give:
always keep the skin dry and clean (not damp)
avoid friction on the surface of the skin, namely by not using shoes with a narrow size
use socks made of soft material when wearing shoes
allow the lump to burst on its own (not forcefully break) as this can lead to new infections
That's all, hope it helps.
Greetings, dr. Denisa
