A history of itchy complaints and these complaints appear between your fingers and frequent recurrences may be a water bug or a fungal skin infection. This can occur in the area of your feet or hands. This fungal infection can be felt as complaints of itching, redness, sometimes it can also be a spot on the skin. If this complaint persists, it can spread to other parts of your body. However, to ensure that this complaint is a water bug or open, a doctor should be examined directly.
If this complaint has been a long time and you feel a relapse and bother you, however, you have never done a doctor's examination, then the diagnosis of water lice diagnosis not by a doctor needs to be evaluated, because the treatment of water fleas and treatment of other disease conditions that have complaints such as this complaint will be very different. So that the initial diagnosis by your family doctor or your dermatologist is needed.
For diagnosis, the doctor who treats you will conduct an interview related to this complaint, plan a direct examination by looking directly at the area of your complaint, by looking directly, usually the doctor can ascertain the cause of this complaint. The results of the examination will ascertain whether the complaint is an infestation or due to certain medical conditions:
1. an insect bite
2. flea bites or scabies
3. bacterial skin infections
5. inflammation of the skin due to contact with certain ingredients
Furthermore, care and treatment will be given according to the results of the examination and its causes, because each of the above possibilities requires different treatment. Therefore, I cannot provide treatment for you, without a direct examination. Treatment can only be given by a doctor who carries out an examination after confirming the diagnosis. This is necessary to prevent unexpected side effects of the drug.
For now, several things you need to consider to prevent recurrence, such as:
1. keep your skin clean
2. Wash your hands and feet after doing activities
3. give a warm compress with a temperature of about 40 degrees celsius for 15 minutes given 2-3 times per day every complaint of itching appears
