Causes Red Spots On The Arm?
Good night, I work in Cikarang which is famous for the heat. I have been working for about 1 year and 4 months there, in the first year I did not get a shift at work, but after I was ordered to work my hand shifts began to appear red spots on my arms, what because I’m allergic to hot weather? Thank you for the explanation …
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your confusion. The conditions that you are experiencing, although they may be related to hot air, may or may not be related. When related, perhaps the more appropriate condition is not allergic to hot air, but prickly heat. Because there are people who are allergic to cold but so far no one is allergic to hot air. By being exposed to such heat, your sweat production becomes excessive and raises abnormalities in the skin.
Another possibility if related can also be due to exposure to pollution. If you were not exposed to heat and pollution and congestion, your skin can adapt better. But after being exposed to it all, there began to be irritation, blockages in the pores and various other reactions that cause such symptoms. While other possibilities that are not related can be due to fungal infections, insect bites or stings, or allergies due to other things.
What is clear, the diagnosis can not be established without a direct examination, because many conditions of skin disorders that look similar, even though the origin is very different. Therefore, we suggest that you should check yourself with a general practitioner or may go directly to a dermatologist, to do a history and physical examination to observe the condition of the disorder and determine the best diagnosis and treatment.
Meanwhile, wear sunscreen if you are going to be exposed to sunlight, use long sleeves, suffice for fluid requirements, wear comfortable clothing, increase fruit and vegetable consumption, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
