Causes And Ways To Deal With Small White, Tender Bumps On The Skin?
Hello doctor. I was experiencing pain in the skin of the front of the neck and the second day appeared small lumps of white and felt more sore. What is this due to and how is the solution?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The symptoms as you mentioned are probably caused by shingles. Shingles is a disease caused by infection with the varicella zoster virus, the same virus that causes chickenpox. A person can get shingles if he has been exposed to chickenpox before and the virus is reactivated. Other possibilities that can cause similar symptoms include:
contact dermatitis atopic dermatitis paederus dermatitis is inflammation of the skin caused by contact with certain insect body fluids (tomcat) insect bites or other small animals other skin infections (eg bacterial, fungal, or parasitic infections) It is better to immediately check with a dermatologist for evaluation the cause of these lesions on your skin. If it is caused by shingles, then antiviral drugs must be given as soon as possible (most effective if given within 72 hours after the appearance of a rash on the skin). Giving drugs as soon as possible can shorten the length of the disease and will reduce the risk of complications of shingles as well.
For now, try not to scratch the lesion on your skin. You can also compress the lesion with cold compresses to help reduce pain around your skin. Make sure the skin is not rubbed against rubbing, use clothes with a low neck so as not to rub against your neck area and be careful when you dry your body with a towel.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
