How To Deal With Scabies / Ringworm In The Area Under The Mouth?
Based on the characteristics maybe it’s really scabies / ringworm, what I want to ask, is it okay for me to use an antifungal cream ointment that is sold freely for facial skin areas? Fear of even having a negative impact, please answer, thank you
Thank you for the question.
Need to be clarified, what exactly are the symptoms of the disease you are experiencing?
Diagnosing a disease, including skin disease should not be done haphazardly. Because, not all the right ointment is given to all types of skin diseases. For example, scabies (which occurs due to mite infection) certainly will not heal if given antifungal ointment. Mites and fungi are two very different microorganisms. If scabies really causes your complaints, then treatment should be done by administering anti-mite drugs, not anti-fungi.
Scabies (in the medical realm called scabies), occurs due to mite infections that make the skin feel itchy, watery bumps, redness, and underneath there are often pathways resembling tunnels where mites drop in, migrate, and remove dirt. This skin disease is often found in the folds of the body, and can spread to various other parts of the body, and even spread very easily to other people who have direct or indirect contact with you. While ringworm, caused by a fungal infection, which typically will make the skin feel itchy, bruntusan, scaly, reddish on the outside, peeling, wet, and complaints can continue to expand to make the skin change color. This condition often occurs on moist skin, and not treated with good hygiene. Like scabies, ringworm can also be very contagious.
In addition to scabies and ringworm, many other medical conditions have similar clinical symptoms, for example prickly heat, impetigo, irritant contact dermatitis, allergic contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, and so on. Because of these many possibilities, we do not recommend that you use indiscriminate drugs, including ointments. Check with yourself first to a doctor or dermatologist to be given the right treatment according to the cause huh ..
I hope this helps.
