How To Deal With Red Bumps On The Skin Due To Forest Mosquito Bites?
, I want to ask. A week ago I was camping with friends at the beach. Even though there I was applying mosquito repellent lotion on my body, but when I got home my hands and feet were bumped with red bumps and lots of them. Until now it has not healed and it still feels itchy. I have already applied anti-itching salmon cream and lemongrass oil and I compress hot water. I wonder what is an effective way to cure it? Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Using an anti-mosquito lotion does not necessarily make you 100% immune from mosquito bites. You need to know, that most mosquito repellent lotions have an effective working time of around 4 to 6 hours, so you have to repeat their use every time the work runs out to maintain the effectiveness of its work. In addition, you can also still be bitten by mosquitoes due to uneven in applying anti-mosquito lotion. This can trigger your complaints.
Apart from mosquito bites, it may also cause red itchy bumps on your body that occur due to other triggers, such as allergies, irritation, skin infections, excessive skin pressure, side effects of drugs, or other skin inflammation. This condition can be treated differently depending on the cause of the complaint.
The question now is, have you ever checked your complaints to the doctor and said to only experience mosquito bites? If not, you should first check yourself to a doctor or dermatologist so that the cause of your complaint is properly identified, whether purely due to mosquito bites, or there are other causes. Blood tests, allergy tests, or other investigations may also be done by a doctor if necessary.
In the meantime, here are the initial handling steps you can take:
No excessive scratching the itchy skin Bathing regularly, use room temperature water, not cold, not too warm Use antiseptic soap and good quality water for bathing Use also towels and clean clothes and do not exchange with others Do not carelessly consume anti-itching drugs Apply calamine lotion to reduce itching. Not in contact with substances that are prone to trigger allergic reactions, irritation, or inflammation of the skin. Do not stress too much. Hope it helps.
