Causes Large Bumps On The Foot Above The Heel?
Good evening, since about a week ago, I had quite large boils on my feet above my heels. About 1cm if I’m not mistaken. I compressed rivanol for a few days and now it’s flat and doesn’t festering anymore even though it’s still a little bump and red. But just now I felt a small lump in my left hand and it was just like a boil on my foot that appeared. Small but rather painful to the touch. Even though I recently changed bed sheets. Are boils severe or dangerous? Do I really have to avoid eating eggs? R nDo you need to see a doctor? And can I compress rivanol again like the first boil? Because I had just been infected with smallpox around the beginning of the end of October until the beginning of November and did not dare to take any more medicine. thanks.
Hello Luna Kuraya,
The emergence of a lump in the skin can be caused by several possibilities ranging from bacterial infections which are often known as boils, fungal infections, insect bites, viral infections such as herpes or other causes. Not infrequently also allergic reactions or other skin infections can underlie the onset of ulcers or known as secondary infections, one of which is because they often scratch the itchy part using unclean nails or hands.
If the cause is ulcers, it is necessary to do an examination where antibiotics will be given either by drinking or rubbing to overcome them. If a boil becomes widespread or enlarged and is called an abscess where action is needed to help overcome it by means of a cut or incision to remove the contents of the abscess.
To ensure the conditions experienced, it is better to have an examination by a doctor before given the right treatment. If you do have a history of allergies to certain foods or ingredients that can cause skin disorders, it is necessary to avoid them so that they do not trigger symptoms.
