Is It True That When You Have A Red Rash On The Skin You Can’t Take A Shower And Get Exposed To The Wind ??
Hello doctor .. I want to ask Sonia,
Hi Sonia .. Thank you for the question.
Reddish rashes on the skin can occur due to several things for example:
Atopic dermatitis / eczema
Irritant contact dermatitis or allergic contact dermatitis
Reddish rash can be accompanied by itching, peeling, scaling, and irritation. Of course this can cause discomfort, therefore if the rash you experience is more widespread, accompanied by itching, bumps, festering, then you should see a dermatologist. So the doctor can do a physical examination directly and if needed can be supported by skin scrapings or blood checks so that the diagnosis can be established. It's also a good idea to keep your skin clean and keep bathing, because unclean skin can be a source of infection. especially if there are open sores or wounds caused by scratching it can become a entry point for bacteria. You can shower using a mild soap or using an antiseptic liquid. In addition, sufficient water needs to keep the skin moist, consider whether you are allergic to food, sahampo, or certain lotions if there is, then avoid the allergy triggers.
