Hello, Linda Vira Febriani. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com.
Water fleas is a layman's term of tinea pedis et manum, which is a disease caused by a fungal infection that causes a skin rash in the form of scaly skin that feels itchy between the toes and hands. However, complaints of scaly skin between the fingers can be caused by several possibilities, including:
Tinea manum (fungal infection of dermatophytes on the sidelines of the fingers, complaints of peeling, scaly, and blistering skin that feels itchy) Irritant contact dermatitis (inflammation of the skin due to contact with irritative substances [detergent, soap, chemicals, etc.], no related to the process of immune sensitization) Scabies (parasitic infection of Sarcoptes scabiei which causes skin rashes, especially in the area between the fingers, around the genitals, buttocks, armpits, itching especially at night, experienced by a group of people who live together like a dormitory or family) It is recommended to check with a doctor or dermatologist in order to get an evaluation and treatment accordingly. Complaints of this skin rash require a direct examination by a doctor. If an indication is found, the doctor will probably do a supporting examination such as skin scrapings and followed by examination under a microscope. Patients may be prescribed creams / ointments to apply, and oral medication to reduce itching complaints.
As a recommendation at home, patients are advised to:
Avoid using clothes / towels with others Keep fingers between the fingers dry and not moist because of sweat If you use gloves frequently, avoid reuse without washing them first To enrich your horizons, you can read articles about water fleas.
