All of these are what I have contracted, please help. I was going to send a photo to make it clearer, but I couldn’t before. Thank you.
Hello Umar, thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service.
Pore skin or in medical terms called pyoderma is a skin infection caused by the bacteria Streptococcus beta hemolyticus or Staphylococcus aureus. There are several types of pyoderma, namely:
Folliculitis is an inflammation of the hair glands that feels itchy and sore. Boils are red bumps on the skin that are painful and filled with pus. The body parts most commonly affected by boils are the face, neck, armpits, shoulders, buttocks, eyelids and thighs. Impetigo is a skin infection in the form of blisters or blotches open to the skin, which then cause yellow or brown crust. Ectima is inflammation that causes tissue loss upper skin (superficial ulcer). If the complaint is increasingly spread, I suggest you to check yourself directly to a specialist skin and genitals, so that you can do a thorough examination, such as physical examination of the skin, and additional examinations if necessary such as routine blood laboratory tests, examination of skin fluid smears, so treatment can be done according to your diagnosis.
As for things you can do right now to reduce your complaints:
Compress the pus rash with warm water, at least three times a day Clean the ruptured pus rash with gauze along with alcohol and anti-bacterial soap Maintain personal and environmental hygiene Wash clothes, towels and sheets with hot water Eat high-calorie and high-protein foods Using creams, soap, or gel as a lubricant so that the skin does not hurt Do not use tight clothing Do not share personal items with others Such information from me, hopefully can help you.
