Is It True That Consumption Of Spicy Foods Causes Blisters?
, is it true that often eating spicy food can be more easily affected by a skin disease that blisters?
Hello Ika Alko, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
It should be understood that in order to diagnose a skin disease a direct physical examination is required. But based on your information in the question, there are several possible causes:
Allergic reactions to certain foods, drinks or drugs Insect bites Impaired immune conditions (the immune system produces antibodies that attack healthy body cells themselves): for example pemphigus, a type of bullous pemphigoid, in which blisters appear in the folds of the body, generally attacking the elderly, due to consuming certain drugs, undergoing certain therapies such as radiotherapy, chemotherapy, suffering from certain diseases such as epilepsy, stroke, parkinsonism, psoriasis, diabetes, arthritis. Pompolyx: blisters on the palms, fingers, soles of the feet, itchy and hot, blisters heal in a few weeks (dry and peeling). Causes and risk factors: heredity, certain antibiotics, stress, exposure to chemicals such as nickel, cobalt, metals, detergents, shampoo, cosmetics, unsuitable perfumes. Sister can compress the lesion with a cool compress or give salicylic acid powder which is sold freely in pharmacies. Avoid foods that you say are the originators.
If the complaint does not improve it's good to see a doctor or dermatologist. The doctor will give topical medications that suppress inflammation, antiallergics taken and to reduce itching as well, to immunosuppressive drugs if judged to be indicated (all types of these drugs require a doctor's prescription).
That's all our answer, hopefully useful, good afternoon.
