How Do You Deal With Chronic Water Fleas?
I’m 20 years old. I have been infected with water fleas since I was 11 years old. water lice are only on the left foot until now. I used to use a water flea ointment but it still exists. which is often the location of water ticks on the left big toe and the sole of the left foot (lateral) next to the pinkie. What ointment / oral medication should I use? thank you
Good morning, thanks for the question
Dermatophytosis is a fungal infection that has keratin digesting properties in tissues that contain horny substances, for example on the skin, hair, and nails. Tinea pedis or fungal infections or often referred to as water legs on the feet are found in many people who in daily life wear a lot of closed shoes accompanied by poor foot care or often wet.
Complaints are felt like itchy red patches of itching. Then there is a history of contact with people who have fungal infections.
1. Humid and hot environment
2. Immune system disorders
4. Diabetes Mellitus
The diagnosis is made by a doctor based on symptoms and examination of typical skin disorders. Treatment can be given topical medication / topical fungus if the skin disorder is limited or not extensive. For diseases that are widespread or resistant to topical therapy, oral / fungal anti-fungal medications can be considered. Antifungal can not be carelessly consumed without a doctor's recommendation because it has several side effects such as liver disorders.
To prevent recurrence, you must maintain personal hygiene, not leave the skin in moist conditions, and the use of towels / clothing at the same time should be avoided.
That's all, hope you can help
