Fungal Infections Occur And The Feet Feel Itchy?
, want to ask, every night my feet itch then I scratch. Ringworm now arises. And on my right foot there was a fracture pen 5 years ago. Is itchy at night that is the effect of the pen? Or it’s the ringworm that causes itching. The problem is itching only at night, especially. thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Ringworm is a type of fungal infection that can indeed cause itchy feet. Not only itchy, this condition also makes the skin look reddish, pale in the middle, bruntusan, scaly, peeling, sometimes even runny. This fungal infection can appear in the area of the foot and any part of the skin, especially those that are often exposed to excessive humidity. People with poor immune system, or people who often come in close contact with other people with fungal infections, are at higher risk of developing fungal infections.
Need to be clarified, have you checked into a doctor and found to have a ringworm? Or do you just guess by yourself based on your observations?
Not infrequently, fungal infections have similar manifestations to other skin conditions, for example infections of other microorganisms (such as bacteria, viruses, or parasites), seborrheic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, xerosis, psoriasis, and so on. Therefore, if you have not seen a doctor, you should not conclude too early. The area of the skin used by the pen may indeed be more prone to itching, which is due to the formation of scar tissue that is less elastic, or it could also be due to irritation and secondary infection due to poor hygiene.
So that your condition can be treated properly, more precisely, you first consult yourself to a doctor or dermatologist huh .. If it's true that a yeast infection is the basis of your complaint, then an anti-fungal cream or ointment may be prescribed by the doctor so that the fungus does not multiply more rapidly . Not only that, several other types of drugs can also be given by doctors according to complaints that arise.
In the meantime, here are the steps you should take:
Does not scratch the skin, although it feels itchy
In the itchy area, just sprinkle the salicyl powder first to reduce the itching
Keep yourself clean, i.e. by bathing diligently and cleanly, wearing clean clothes and footwear, diligently washing feet and tags, also not exchanging personal items with others
Do not carelessly apply or take medicine without doctor's advice
Hope this helps ...
