Handling Impetigo Skin Infections Apart From Taking Antibiotics?
Hello .. I want to ask about the bolusa empitigo skin infection .. I have been undergoing treatment by taking anti-antibiotics and ointments, but after the antibiotics run out and I don’t drink anymore, they reappear and spread .. Initially around the right side of the body and now on the arm the left and the neck began to appear small .. why is that and what is the suggestion for next ..?
Impetigo is a skin infection caused by bacteria that can occur in the form of blisters called bullous impetigo and can appear in the form of scabs or what is called nonbulous / crustous impetigo. This condition can be transmitted from direct contact with the patient's skin or by items that are touched and contaminated with bacteria.
To overcome this, treatment with adequate antibiotics is needed in accordance with the administration from the doctor. In addition, try to keep the skin clean by bathing regularly, keeping the home environment clean, resting well, avoiding scratching wounds to prevent the spread of bacteria through hands, washing hands before and after touching the skin and other efforts to prevent germs from growing back and causing growth. new symptoms.
If the complaint recurs, it can be caused by remaining bacteria or lodged in certain areas or due to other skin infections, so it is necessary to have it checked again by a dermatologist and a supporting examination, one of which is a laboratory examination.
