Chronic Skin Disease Does Not Heal?
I have a skin disease that does not heal 2 years (recurrence). If the recurrence initially feels itchy then there is a curvature filled with yellow fluid, sometimes almost like pus for so long it becomes eczema. First in the left arm healed 5cm in diameter and the remaining dark marks. Then move on the left calf in front of the diameter of 10cm (after so long healed and the rest of the former dark skin). Now move the left calf at the back is bigger than before before. And in the right calf there are two spots (stitches and abrasions that have healed). Check with a dermatologist for prescription methylprednasolone 16mg, clindamicyn 300mg. Later dry and inflammation of the eczema diminishes the skin so it scabs then after the scab is torn apart the rest of the skin is smooth like a scabbed exfoliation. Last recurrence, from a severe condition and wet inflammation can recover and dry smoothly only run out of a 16mg methyl and 300mg of clindamiculyn. But after three days the itching symptoms recur again after the next two days the condition returned severe and wet again. The question is, how long can I consume clindamicyn for the long term. What should I do if after taking the above dose and the eczema healed and dried, do I then reduce the dose to a certain time? (Diagnosis of a dermatologist because the allergen might be bacterial. Note: I have several cavities) Is this autoimmune?
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Clindamycin is an antibiotic that is usually used to treat diseases caused by bacterial infections. These drugs are hard drugs so their use must be based on prescribing and supervision by a doctor who treats patients directly. The use of this drug without evaluation by a doctor will increase the risk of side effects, especially immunity (resistance) to germs against antibiotics.
The duration of use of clindamycin varies greatly, depending on the diagnosis of the disease as well as the patient's response to the drug. Generally, therapy with this drug for skin diseases due to bacterial infections lasts for 1-2 weeks. However, consult a doctor or dermatologist who prescribes you antibiotics regarding the duration of consumption required. Although symptoms appear to be improving in a short time, this antibiotic still needs to be used according to the duration of time recommended by the doctor. The risk of germ resistance to antibiotics also increases if the drug dose is not completed.
As a suggestion to help deal with eczema symptoms, you are advised to avoid exposure to substances / conditions that are known or suspected to be triggers for symptoms; avoid the habit of scratching the rash so as not to cause injury to the skin; and shower twice a day with relatively softer soap (for example: baby soap).
