Circular Sores On The Skin?
Hello, I want to ask. I have a complaint with my coolie where before I went to a doctor and was given ointment the wound quickly disappeared but later it will appear again. And this doctor said because I was stressed. I still don’t understand even though I don’t really feel a lot of stress.
Thank you for the question.
Are there circular sores on your skin like shingles or also known as shingles?
Shingles or shingles or herpes zoster is caused by infection with the Varicela-zoster virus. This virus causes chicken pox then settles in the nerves which will then become shingles when the sufferer's body condition deteriorates.
The striking symptom is that there are water-filled bumps clustered with a reddish base. The lumps of water filled together, so that sometimes they look bigger. Another symptom is pain and burning in these red bumps. These reddish clusters follow the nerves that supply the skin. It is important to know that this circular wound on the skin never crosses the midline of the body.
Other causes of circular sores on the body apart from shingles are:
Contact Dematitis. In some cases circular wounds are found on the abdomen caused by wearing rubberized trousers or using an iron belt. Sufferers may have a history of other allergies with symptoms of itching when wearing a watch.
Ringworm. This disease is caused by a fungal infection that forms a ring on each sore and itches.
Eczema. Dry itchy knees, elbows, and skin.
Consult a Dermatologist for your complaints, in order to get the appropriate therapy.
The suggestions that I can give:
shower with a non-irritating soap
change clothes and underwear whenever wet or sweaty
avoid using hot water when bathing
Hopefully my explanation can answer the question.
