Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. People in Indonesia recognize two types of eczema, which are divided into dry and wet eczema. Dry eczema is also called atopic dermatitis, and is a skin condition that occurs because certain triggers are similar to allergies, while wet eczema is a state of open sores on the skin that heals a long time and often reappears.
Furthermore, wet eczema is further divided into three causes:
Complications from diabetes, with reddish, swollen wounds, irritation and odor. Usually this condition often occurs at the bottom of the foot or toes in diabetics. The effects of strong pressure in a short time, or lighter pressure in a long time, for example in those who have bed rest or rest for a long time and paralyzed people. blood due to narrowing or blockage of blood circulation in the legs
Regarding your question, this condition can generally be dealt with even though it sometimes takes a long time. In your father's case, with his condition not getting better, we think we need to evaluate the situation. Our advice, first confirm whether it is true that he has wet eczema or other conditions such as leishmaniasis, leprosy, sarcoidosis, or even skin cancer.
For this reason, we recommend that you consult your father to a general practitioner first to be directed to the appropriate specialist, or if so far it has been handled by a specialist, you can do an evaluation by asking how your father is developing, how he targets recovery, what steps course will be taken and how long. We cannot recommend medication or other alternative treatments before conducting a direct examination to avoid adverse effects on your father.
In the meantime, make sure your father's wounds are always clean, take medication regularly and regularly change the bandages. So, hopefully answering your question.
