What medicine or cream if our feet are allergic to rubber flip-flops?
Hello, thanks for the question.
Allergic reactions to the skin can be caused by several things, for example due to contact with irritants or allergic substances, causing inflammation of the skin that appears after direct contact with certain substances and irritate the skin. Apart from contact, it can also be caused by drug allergies, food allergies, environmental allergies, and so on. This allergic reaction increases the risk in people with:
Young age, can appear at any age, but more often in children
History of asthma or allergies
Work that is often in contact with irritants or allergens
Most people who have dermatitis have a history of allergies and arise after exposure or are triggered by something so that it will often recur if the trigger is not avoided, therefore you should consult a dermatologist if the complaints do not decrease and find out what triggers the complaint that occurs so can be avoided and complaints don't recur. The doctor will conduct a question and answer and direct examination of the lesion area as well as several additional examinations if needed such as blood tests, skin prick tests, patch tests, and so forth. Handling is tailored to the underlying cause. To suppress inflammation due to allergic reactions, doctors usually use steroid drugs and antihistamine classes, while antibiotics are given if lesions are suspected to arise due to a bacterial infection or a secondary infection due to bacteria. To reduce and prevent complaints, you should:
Avoid scratching the inflamed skin area
Keep skin moisturized by using lotion
Use skin care products that are safe
Avoid drying the skin too strong
Avoid wearing tight and tight clothes
Eat healthy and nutritious food
Increase the consumption of water
Use medication as directed by your doctor
Avoid stress, cigarettes, and alcohol
Thus, hopefully it helps.
