Hello Firman, thank you for visiting HealthReplies.com.
Complaints of red bumps like acne are not typical for one cause. Before that, what needs to be dug deeper, which part of the body is the bump? if all over the body, which part of the body is the first to appear? Is it accompanied by symptoms such as fever, flu?. Here are some possible causes for complaints of red bumps such as acne:
Chickenpox or varicella zoster. It is a skin disease caused by the Varicella zoster virus and is highly contagious. Generally, this virus attacks children, but it is also possible to attack adults if their immune system is not good. Initially, the symptoms of chickenpox are characterized by fever, decreased appetite, weakness, fatigue followed by the appearance of red rashes that turn into fluid-filled nodules. The fluid will turn into pus and dry in 1-2 days. Herpes zoster. The virus that causes the same as chickenpox, namely Varicella zoster. This virus attacks the nerves and skin so that the symptoms are a painful and hot rash that turns into red nodules filled with fluid. Similar to chickenpox, herpes zoster begins with fever, headache, weakness. Herpes zoster is not contagious, but if a person has not had chickenpox and is in direct contact with someone with shingles, he or she can get chickenpox. Impetigo. It is a skin infection caused by the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus. It is highly contagious by direct contact, especially in children. In impetigo, rashes appear followed by red nodules, usually around the nose and mouth that can turn into a yellow liquid and erupt. There are several things you can do to reduce complaints and prevent transmission:
Avoid wearing items such as towels, blankets, clothes with the patient. Do not scratch or frequently touch the itchy and sore skin. Always keep the skin clean. Use a powder containing salicylic acid to reduce itching. If within 1-2 weeks your complaint does not improve, you should come to the doctor doctor for direct examination. And maybe the doctor will carry out supporting tests such as blood tests, skin scraping tests, etc. if needed.
Thank you, hope it's useful
